Devotions Week 10:
To be in Christ is the source of the Christian life; to be like Christ is the sum of His excellence; to be with Christ is the fullness of His joy. ~ Charles Hodge
|The command to believe. This is His command: to believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as He commanded us.
||1 John 3:23
|Living faith. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
|Faith in the Son of God. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
||1 John 5:5
|Powerful in word and deed. “What things?” he asked. “About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people.”
|In the name of Jesus. Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
|Sacrificial living In Christ. Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise — the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
|Christ in you changes everything. But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.||Galatians 5:22-23
God forgave my sin in Jesus name. I’ve been born again in Jesus name.
And in Jesus name I come to you to share His love as He told me to.
He said, “Freely, freely you have received. Freely, freely give.
Go in my name and because you believe others will know that I live.”
All power is given in Jesus name. On earth and heaven in Jesus name.
And in Jesus name I come to you. To share His power as He told me to.
