Acknowledging what we have. December 27
That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Philemon 1:6
When we accepted Christ Jesus as our Saviour, not only did we receive forgiveness and salvation. We were also loaded down with many more blessings, to numerous to talk about here. The Bible’s teaches that in Jesus we are righteous, wise, have peace, are holy, have eternal life and more. Jesus sits at the Fathers right hand as the representative of man. As Adam was our first representative and thru his fall we received our sinful nature. So God sent His Son into the world and thru His triumph and victory over sin we now receive His nature and all the great characteristics that go along with Him. We need today to acknowledge what is in us as his children. Not only thru belief but also our actions. Let Christ rise to the top in our lives. Sure we have work to do in becoming more like Christ Jesus. But the main effort is to simply remain in Him, by faith and love. Then all that is His is also ours. May God bless our day today.
