A Mighty God And A Glorious Savior

“Who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.” 1 Thessalonians 5:10 (NASB)
God has honored and crowned His creation, dressed him with dignity, given him the opportunity to make choices, and enabled him to reason and think. He gave His Son that we might have a way to the Almighty. Without God life would be an endless vacuum with no incentive or purpose. Life without God would be a cheat. God has made life a challenge, a thrill of conquest. He gives strength far beyond ourselves. He encourages the downcast heart.
Isaiah, the mighty statesman of the Old Testament, said: “The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, because He trusts in You” (Isaiah 26:3). – W. E. Thorne, A Bit Of Honey

His Life Is Our Life

“I am The vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 14:5 (NASB)
“We are in Christ by grace; but we need to realize and accentuate the union by meditation and prayer. Waiting more absolutely for His impulses in intercession and action. Being silent for Him to speak. Drawing on Him by the constant appeal of faith which becomes as natural as breathing. Looking away to Him for His commendation. Seeking only His verdict on what may have been said and done. So closely joined to Him, that He may produce in and through us whatever fruit He will for the refreshment of men and the glory of God.” – F. B. Meyer
