Word for Today
The Word (41)-With the Word, it’s All or None.
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
If you have chosen the truth (Jesus), stay with the light in the truth. If you prefer darkness, stay in darkness. There should be no mixing. There are many in the church of Christ shouting Lord, Lord, but their hearts are far from the Lord.
Our Lord Himself speaking in the book of revelation, declares:
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16)
If you are for the Lord, be crucified with Him. Do no longer stand on the fence. Joshua in his farewell speech to the children of Israel asked them to choose one master to serve:
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15).
As for me and those who are faithful within the MOW family, we will serve the true God in Christ Jesus with integrity. Please, emulate apostle Paul and be crucified with Christ daily.
Father, please give me the grace to crucify every part of me with you in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
