THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Today, I am not perfect: in fact, I'm far from it.
But, PRAISE JESUS, I am COUNTED as perfect;
for my Father sees me in HIS righteousness!

LIGHT from the WORD.

Jesus is the "Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."
(See John 1:29)
Because of Him, and Him ALONE, God can look upon the world
and ACCEPT those who surrender their lives to Jesus!
They, who surrender to Jesus, become "sons of God"
(See John 1:12)

When we surrender to Jesus as Lord, we can say,
"I am crucified WITH Christ" (See Gal 2:20)
And, our sin is crucified WITH Him!

And, yet - we are still sinners ALL! (See Rom 3:23)

WEEP over your sin!
But, by all means, take it to God in prayer!

CONFESS your sin, and be forgiven in Christ! (See 1John 1:9)
For, through His cross, He has taken YOUR sin, and mine,
upon His own body!
He buried that sin in the tomb of corruption,
and has been raised INCORRUPTIBLE for our sakes!

Take heart my Christian friends.
The "LORD our righteousness" (See Jer 23:6)
has dressed you in HIS OWN righteousness!
(See also 2Cor 5:21 above)

We stand in need of GRACE!
But, BY grace, we stand in no OTHER need!!

"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

(Heb 4:16)

Come DAILY to Christ in prayer!
And, LOOK to HIM for your ACCEPTANCE and RIGHTEOUSNESS!

Love ya!
