Quiet Time with Jesus – A E I O U

Tuesday, 11 August 2015

God did not forgive us because we are sorry for our sins. The only reason He forgives us and promises to forget our sins is – the death of Jesus Christ. His holy blood was shed to give us life.

It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God – that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.
— 1 Corinthians 1:30

God restores to us the right standing with Himself only by means of - the death of Jesus Christ. His holy blood was shed to give us life.

When we understand the truth - the death of Jesus Christ, we would desire to ‘die’ to everything that was never a part of Him.

Oswald Chambers said, “Our Lord does not pretend we are all right when we are all wrong.” So, we believers also must not pretend…

The atonement - the death of Jesus Christ – is the propitiation God uses to make unholy people holy. Praise the Lord!

 

 

My Prayer

Dear Sovereign LORD,

Help us to understand the deep and the divine so that Your love reaches the depth of our souls.

Help us to find space and time for in-depth listening to Your voice: train our ears, tune our minds, transform our attitude…

There is no other way, no other name, by which we can be saved.

Teach us how to be alert to Your voice and how to pray without ceasing.

This is what You desire – that we are alert (to Your voice), eager (to listen and obey), ignite (others), obey (You) and unite(with our brothers and sisters in Christ) – aeiou!

Someone said that You speak clearly and creatively. Indeed, You really do! Hallelujah!

Thank You Father God!
Amen.

In Him, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
— Ephesians 1:7-8

To Whom It May Concern

He listens to your tears of hurt and pain; He listens to your cries of struggles of sin and shame; Dear beloved, would you listen? What do you hear? God is calling out your name . He can cast out your fears; He can wipe away your tears; Will you still cover your ear; Will you refuse to draw near? God said, “At the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow." Will you die to self and reach out to Him now?

Shalom

Father, not my will but Yours be done. Amen.
