Daily Light on The Daily Path [Morning]

Reckon ye yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
~ Rom 6:11

He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 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.

Because I live, ye shall live also.  I give unto them eternal life: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God … For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

John 5:24, Gal 2:19-20, John 14:19, John 10:28-30, Col 3:1, Col 3:3

Friend

You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.
~ John 15:14-15 [NLT] 

God sees us as friends.  He is not a pushy master or distant deity.  He wants to be in a relationship with you! Make Him a part of your day, praying and sharing your burdens with Him.

Like Fire

“Does not my word burn like fire?” says the LORD. “Is it not like a mighty hammer that smashes a rock to pieces?”
~ Jeremiah 23:29 [NLT]

The Bible is a wonderful tool that we have been blessed with. It is God’s Word and direction to us. It can calm fears and convict heavy hearts. Are you staying tuned into what God has to say to you? Be faithful to the Lord and discover what His word can do in your life. 

Evening Prayer

UNITED WITH THE CHURCH 
John 13:34-35; 1 Corinthians 14:26; Philippians 2:1-2

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that, as you desire to be united with Christ, you may also desire to be united with the members of the church. May you share the same spirit and purpose as your brothers and sisters in Christ. May you contribute to the strengthening of the church by encouraging, edifying, and instructing your brothers and sisters. May you also welcome encouragement, edification and instruction from them. Most of all, may you show you are one with them through your love, for this is how all men will know that you are a true disciple of Christ.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
