Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)
Today’s Daily Light
Know the King…See Him Seated on High as He Reigns….See What We have ‘in’ Him…
Ephesians 1:18 NIV Paul wrote “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches, of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for who believe.
(From Charles Ellicott’s Commentary): The heart is similarly spoken of in relation to spiritual perception in Romans 1:21; 1Corinthians 2:9; 1Corinthians 4:5; it signifies the inner man in his entirety; and the phrase here used seems to convey the all-important truth, that for the knowledge of God all the faculties of understanding, conscience, and affection must be called into energy by the gift of the light of God.
Paul goes on to say in verses 19-22… “That power is like the working of his might strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”
We belong to an unshakeable kingdom that is eternal. We serve a King who is unchanging. We are His and He is ours. All of this is the work of God the Father who calls us to the cross and reconciles us to Himself through the shed blood of His Son. The ‘work’ of God is a gift to us…given to us to demonstrate His great love for us. See it…let ‘seeing’ it impact your ‘heart’…which is your understanding, conscience, and the seat of your affections. Be energized by ‘seeing’ that you are His and He is yours. Go out and share this good news with someone today. Amen
