Today’s Devotional – April 14th

John’s Promise!

.

.

.

.

.

The apostle, John has a special ministry to us.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cano_-_San_Juan.jpg

.

Yes, the life of John stands as a rebuke to the modern-day general consensus which says that Christians must remain in our semi-diseased spiritual condition.

A DEFEATED CHURCH

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cano_-_San_Juan.jpgThe fact is, today’s teachers rarely ever encourage us to become fully changed into the image of Christ.

.

And to prove this, they will take some passage from Paul’s writings such as this… “For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.” Romans 7:19, 20.

.

Oh yes, this passage does indeed present the great struggle which goes on in the life of every Believer…

JOHN’S CHRISTLIKE ENCOURAGEMENT

.

But if we read John’s three epistles, the Christ-like language he used makes it evident that Johnhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cano_-_San_Juan.jpg had so greatly overcome the world that he had become totally transformed into Christ’s image!

.

What a great encouragement! John had so totally died-to-self, that it was no longer John that lived, but Christ was living His glorious life through John!

.

And the big encouragement here is that if John could attain to this complete transformation, then what’s stopping us from attaining the same victory in our own life?

GOD’S POWER MUCH GREATER!

.

Listen to this next passage… “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the Power that worketh in us,” Ephesians 3:20.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cano_-_San_Juan.jpg.

Do you see what this verse is saying? We can attain more than we can even imagine in Christ!

.

And as this above passage reveals, God’s Spirit is willing to give us exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, of the righteousness of Christ!

.

We don’t have to remain in our spiritual leprosy!

.

We can become totally Christ-like! Just like John obviously did!

JOHN’S PROMISE FOUND IN 1st, 2nd, AND 3rd JOHN!

.

And so, those three little epistles of John have this overriding message and promise!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cano_-_San_Juan.jpg

.

Yes, those three little letters of John have an encouragement to each and every one of us, that we can have it all, if we want it all!

.

Now that’s really Good News!

THE ZODIAC CONSTELLATION NAMES

It is not the purpose of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But the common names of many constellations must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.
