Quiet Time with Jesus – His Name

Monday, 7 September 2015

God’s sovereign plan has now been revealed to us. At the right time, He will bring everything together under the authority of Christ – everything in heaven and on earth.

The religious leaders plotted to kill Jesus … The court crowd asked Pilate to release Barabbas rather than Jesus … The soldiers beat Jesus and crowned Him with a crown of thorns … Soldiers were assigned to guard Jesus’ tomb …

All the evil intents were integral parts of God’s sovereign plan. Our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth was the One and Only Man bearing all the sins of the entire world – past, present and future.

While Jesus agonized in prayer in the garden of Gethsemane, His disciples were on His mind. He said, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.
— Matthew 26:41
As Jesus endured the excruciating pain on the cross, He said the most amazing words, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
— Luke 23:34

My Prayer

Dear Father God,

You exalted Jesus to the highest place and gave Him the Name that is above every name. At the Name of Jesus every knee shall bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth. Every tongue shall confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD! Amen!

Today, we are united with Christ - working out our salvation with fear and trembling. Help us do everything without complaining or arguing so that we may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation.

May our love abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that we may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of the Lord, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ.

Praise the LORD! Glory be to GOD!
Amen.

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