Let us be the BEST we have ever been as 2017 mighty men!

HIS WORD for TODAY

Colossians 2. 9-12

“For in Christ all the fullness of God lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised with Him through your faith in the working of God who raised Him from the dead!”

REFLECTIONS ON HIS WORD:

As mighty men of God we are in Christ and living to be as one with Christ. What a blessing it is to know the greatest impact of God’s desire to be reconciled with us through the giving of His only begotten Son to the world. In the end- WE WIN because GOD will not lose the battle of love for His people. Yes, there will be those who surrender the fight of faith and clothe themselves with the darkness of the enemy. Isn’t it interesting to recognize the transition of the Enemy of God, Satan, from an angel of light, beauty and joy to the chief of fallen angels whose appearance to man is a facade of light, beauty and joy hiding the truth of their nature- darkness, ugliness and sorrow. Yes, the vices of this world are the tools of the enemy cloaked in “bling and false promises” luring the weary in their own despair. Misery loves company is the reality of living in the Hell of the Enemy. Even the faithful experience “misery loves company” but with the promise of God’s love through Jesus Christ the company of the faith-filled believers will empower and enable the downtrodden to see the light of day which is in Christ alone. What a strength of character this is for the mighty men of God. As we take on the leadership of raising the generations that follow we need to know we will never be alone. God Himself is always with us. It is His promise to us that will never be broken. As we have been raised from the penalty of death which is the result of unforgiven sin so are we raised to an eternal and abundant life. We must live life in this world with this reality wrapped around our heart, mind and spirit. It is a heaven-woven robe of righteousness. It is clasped by the Holy Spirit and anointed by the grace of God. It is the undergarment of the full armor of God. We are given every opportunity to be successful in this world as we will be in the next. Let us take every opportunity to exercise our call to be leaders in the world- at home and abroad.

“Let us be the best we have ever been as 2017 mighty men.”
