Galatians 2:19-21

“For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. 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. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”

  • Relying on our goodness is not enough, because the reality is, that we are not that good! Christ gave His life for us because our goodness has many flaws! When we sin, even though we are Christians, we often feel as though we have lost God’s grace! We feel unclean and defeated! While we should feel convicted, we should never feel defeated or condemned! Our conviction should drive us to confession, repentance, and restoration, into fellowship with God! If we continue in the defeat of sin, we have set aside God’s grace, and are relying on our own power to conquer the sin, that in ourselves, we have no power over! His mercy and grace are our salvation, eternity, and peace! HE IS ENOUGH! May we choose to be crucified of ourselves and to live for Him, and by faith in Him, always.
  • Placing your faith in Christ is not a onetime event you did some time ago. It is a lifestyle you commit to everyday in every situation. When you live by faith in Jesus, you are never living alone! If Christ truly lives in you, you should be walking daily in victory, and never in defeat! Think about the fact that THE POWER over sin, over death, and over hell, dwells in you! Do not live for yourself, or by yourself! Live in THE VICTORY that is in you! PRAISE THE FATHER! PRAISE THE SON!  Be crucified daily! Live by faith in Jesus daily! Your testimony should be recent and living, not a decision you made years ago! The life you live is evidence of your commitment to Christ! There is no such thing as a partial commitment! Let your focus and your intentional living be in Christ! Direct your thoughts so that your heart will be pure!
  • Would you consider yourself as one who “lives by faith in the Son of God”?
  •  What would those who are around you the most say about your faith?

Ephesians 2:8-10 “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Dear Lord, please give us the strength to be steadfast in faithfully living with You in control! May we understand that we can rest in Your power, and that you will never leave us or forsake us. Forgive us for the many times we have put our selfish desires above the submissive and fulfilling life you desire. Please protect us from the ever-present evil in this world, and guide us to be a “light in the darkness”, for Your glory. May You be glorified in our lives!  Amen

John 5:24

“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” Our purpose is God’s glory, if we are His. If you have received the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, share that information with someone, and give all glory to God. No other gift will ever compare to the Gift of eternal life through Jesus. Have you accepted this Gift? Is the Gift open and being used? Would Jesus testify that you have given your life to Him? Who do you live to please? John 5:36-37“But the testimony that I have is greater than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to accomplish, the very works that I am doing, bear witness about me that the Father has sent me. 37 And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness about me. His voice you have never heard, his form you have never seen”

John 5:5-9

“One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?” The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, and while I am going another steps down before me.” Jesus said to him, “Get up, take up your bed, and walk.” And at once the man was healed, and he took up his bed and walked” Many of us have a “sin affliction”, that we have been in for years and years. We feel helpless in our sin, and cannot see how to overcome it. The question we must answer is, “Do you want to be freed from it?”. Jesus is the way out. He is ready and willing to heal us, and cleanse us. If we will just believe Him and trust Him, He will heal us and give us a life we thought would never be possible. Ask and it will be given. Seek and you shall find. If you want to be healed, Jesus Is

John 4:39-42

“Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” So, when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. And because of his words many more became believers. They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.”” At first the Samaritans believed because of what they had heard, but later they believed because of what they had experienced. The people of the city did not just hear about Jesus from the woman, and claim Him; they went to Him, heard for themselves what He had to say, and made a personal decision to believe in Him, and follow Him. Jesus wants your belief to be based on a personal relationship with Him. You can believe because of what someone has told you, but the experience of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is what changes your life. Your salvation can never be based off someone else’s testimony. Your claim of Christianity is real,

John 4:28-29

“So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?”” After meeting and learning about Jesus at the well, this Samaritan woman left her water jar at the well, and went to tell the Samaritan people about Jesus. She was radically changed and excited. After an encounter with Jesus, the woman at the well forgot her routine task of getting water at the well, and her whole focus changed. Her desire to tell others about Jesus totally engulfed her purpose for living. A relationship with Jesus will change your priorities. Have you left your water jar at the well, or do your routine task and personal worldly needs seem more important than your Savior? Do you see your need for a Savior?

John 3:36

“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” Belief in Jesus, and obedience to Him, is the key to your eternity in heaven. True belief requires obedience. When you claim belief in Christ, and there is no evidence of your faith, you are living a lie. In the end, Jesus is the only investment that will matter. How much time today will you focus on your belief and your obedience? If you were put on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?

John 3:30

“He must increase, but I must decrease.” — The evidence of Christian growth in our lives is when our focus is continually growing toward Christ and fading from self! We must answer and live like John the Baptist did when asked about Jesus. Our lives must be committed to exalting the name of Jesus Christ. We only have so much room in our hearts and in our minds, let us work together on giving it all to Christ! You are loved. When we decrease in self, we increase in Christ and He is exalted, not us. As we learn to humble ourselves, He will lift us up. When Jesus is the object and focus of our desires, we will exemplify Him, grow closer to Him, and find true joy and peace in Him. May God be glorified in our lives. Is Christ becoming greater in your life? Is His will taking more precedence in your life than your own self will? Is your focus more on what you desire for your life or on what Christ desires for your life? Is a change needed? Is Jesus becoming more apparent in your life daily? Weekly? Monthly? Yearly? Can the world even
