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

Matthew 4:7

“Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’”” We have no right to put God to a test. When we understand who God is, and who we are, the only correct response is humility.

Matthew 4:3-4

“And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”” If you say you are seeking God daily, but you are not consistently in His Word, then I challenge that God is not your priority. God’s Word will change your life by guiding every step you take. Get to know His Word and let it guide your every step. The application of His Word to your life will bring peace and joy that you cannot find anywhere else. If you are just feeding your body with food, you are just existing, but if you are feeding your soul with God’s Word, you are living. Make a vow today to truly “live” the rest of your life. We try not to miss many meals, but how often do we skip getting into the Word? Maybe that is why we often feel spiritually malnourished. How much time do you spend meditating on God’s Word, versus thinking about your next meal? Do you need to adjust

Matthew 4:1

“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” The Holy Spirit may lead us to a place where we will be tempted, but He will not leave us there alone. Overcoming temptation strengthens us. Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Matthew 3:10

“The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” A Christian, by claim only, is not a Christian. We must live a Jesus proclaiming life. What fruit are you producing in your Christian walk? What in your daily walk sets you apart from those who do not know Christ as their Savior? Do others want what you have because of the joy they see in your life?

Matthew 1:23

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us) All other gifts are not relevant compared to the true Gift of Christmas. Jesus is the only gift we need, and the only essential gift. He is available to all who will receive Him, but no one will benefit from a gift they refuse.

Proverbs 31:30

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” There is nothing more beautiful than a Christlike woman. As a matter of fact, the beauty of everyone is directly proportional to their walk with Christ.
