THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
You can truly "live for the moment"
When Jesus is IN it!
2 Cor 13:14
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the
Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
Light from the WORD.
The above Scripture is the final instruction of Paul to the church at Corinth.
In this second letter to that church, Paul has given them may instructions.
However, they cannot begin to follow those instructions without:
"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and
the communion of the Holy Ghost."
"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ" is the continual outflow of God's
unmerited favor upon believers.
It is the never ending fountain of grace!
"The love of God" is the only thing that can explain God's continual
forgiveness of our sin.
When we "confess" our sins, He is "faithful" to forgive them.
( 1John 1:9).
"The communion of the Holy Ghost" is the continued fellowship of God in the
lives of believers.
It is by His continued fellowship that we are aware of the divine will of God in our lives.
Also, by His continued fellowship, we are given power to express, or demonstrate:
"(Gal. 5:22) the fruit of the Spirit" which "is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, (23) Meekness, temperance..."
For if we "live in the Spirit," we shall also "walk by the Spirit"
Simple prayer for the day:
Lord help me LIVE in and EXHIBIT "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost."
