Verse of the day — Ephesians 4:29

Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.

Ephesians 4:29(NASB)

Revelation of Jesus Christ

In Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. (Colossians 2:9,10 NIV)

If you and I, dear friends, are going to make anything like the progress that Paul made as a young convert and as a growing Christian, and if we are going to have anything of the wheat that he had in spiritual impress and impact, and if we are going to count in any degree as he counted in the work of the Lord; one thing is absolutely essential and do get hold of this. The youngest Christian get hold of this and everybody else; that if we take our salvation, our conversion or anything that has to do with it as something in itself, there's going to be limitation.

We have got to see everything in the light of the Person, of Jesus Christ! That is, we have not to take this as a gift – salvation as a gift in itself – or anything else of the Christian life as a gift in itself; we have got to look at that and say: "What does that signify as to the Giver? What does that signify as to Christ? What does that mean as to the Source of my salvation?" You may not grasp the point but it is of infinite importance because all progress in the Christian life and all power in Christian service comes not from grasping, the apprehending, and the enjoyment of salvation as such, but seeing Jesus! Because, you see, Jesus is the sum total of ALL Divine revelation.

Your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name.

This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.You shall no longer be termed Forsaken … but you shall be called Hephzibah [My Delight Is in Her] … for the Lord delights in you … As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you. § He has sent Me … to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.  I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation … as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation … as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

My times are in Your hand.

His saints are in Your hand. § The word of the Lord came to [Elijah], saying, “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” … Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.”

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on … Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. § Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Imitating Is Imitation

For to me to live is Christ" (Phil. 1:21).

Once we learn the truth of our union with the Lord Jesus, and of the Holy Spirit's indwelling, any attempt to imitate Christ will be seen for what it is: unscriptural, and futile.

"Our Father is going to teach us, mainly through personal failure, that the life we live is the life of our Lord Jesus alone. The Christian life is not our living a life like Christ, or our trying to be Christ-like, nor is it Christ giving us the power to live a life like His; but it is Christ Himself living His own life through us; no longer I, but Christ.'"

"The end of Christ's incarnation, death and resurrection was to prepare and form an holy nature and frame for us in Himself, to be communicated to us by union and fellowship with Him; and not to be able to produce in ourselves the first originals of such an holy nature by our own endeavors."

"The believer's true education is in the growth of Christ within. The Church's real ministry is not multitudinous public services, so-called, but the forming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the lives of His people; the reproduction of Christ; epistles made alive by the Holy Spirit, to be seen and read of all men." -C.A.F.

"There is no answer to infidelity like the life of the Lord Jesus displayed through the Christian. Nothing puts the madness of the infidel, and the folly of the superstitious more to shame and silence than the humble, quiet, devoted walk of a thorough-going, heavenly-minded, and divinely-taught believer."

"But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you" (2 Thess. 3:3).

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers

Undaunted Radiance

“Nay, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” Romans 8:37

Paul is speaking of the things that might seem likely to separate or wedge in between the saint and the love of God; and the remarkable thing is that nothing can wedge in between the love of God and the saint. These things can and do come in between the devotional exercise of the soul and God and separate individual life from God; and none of them is able to wedge in between the love of God and the soul of the saint. The bedrock of our Christian faith is the unmerited, fathomless marvel of the love of God exhibited on the Cross of Calvary, a love we never can and never shall merit. Paul says this is the reason we are more than conquerors in all these things, super-victors, with a joy we would not have but for the very things which look as if they are going to overwhelm us.

The surf that distresses the ordinary swimmer produces in the surf-rider the super-joy of going clean through it. Apply that to our own circumstances, these very things - tribulation, distress, persecution, produce in us the super-joy; they are not things to fight. We are more than conquerors through Him in all these things, not in spite of them, but in the midst of them. The saint never knows the joy of the Lord in spite of tribulation, but because of it - "I am exceeding joyful in all tribulation," says Paul.

Undaunted radiance is not built on anything passing, but on the love of God that nothing can alter. The experiences of life, terrible or monotonous, are impotent to touch the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

God, My Father (Study In God - All I Need-22)


Study - GOD, All I Need

Fellowship with the Father

Truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. “Father” – what an incredibly rich, awe-inspiring and meaningful relationship. “Father” – what a precious bond with Him Who was and is and is to come. Like as a Father pities his own children, even so  the Lord pities them that fear Him. And He pitied us so passionately that He sent His one and only Son to die – for me. His compassion is so vast, that he promises that it is new each and every morning. Oh worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Bow down before Him… The Lord..Abba. My Father and your Father – the Lord is His name.

Fellowship Through Christ

You are my Father, my God. You are the Rock of my salvation.. protected in the cleft of the Rock.. covered, cleansed, purified in Christ. Hidden under the shadow of His wings – guarded as the apple of His eye. Oh Lord, You are my Father. I am the clay.. the work of your hand. Oh that I would fully submit to the hands of the Master Potter – to shape and to hone – and as Christ Himself, Who “took on Himself the form of a servant, revealed when He said “I can of Myself do nothing..” Nothing… NOTHING …? Nothing… The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do – for whatsoever things The Father doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

Meekness and Majesty

Why can God of God and Light of Light.. God incarnate do nothing….? WHY …. because I do not seek My own will, but the will of the Father who sent Me. Oh what meekness and majesty, Manhood and Deity, in perfect harmony – the Man who is God.. – the One Who is the Son of the Father. This was His life’s work – to do the will of Him Who sent Me.

Manhood and Deity

And mysteries of all mysteries is that
