THEME: THE WORD OF GOD
1 Peter 1:22-25
“Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away, But the word of the LORD endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.”
-The word of God describes our identity in Christ. We who believe in Jesus Christ and His word; have received Him into our hearts and He gives us the gift of salvation. We have been born of an incorruptible seed leading to obedience of His word; having been incorporated into the lineage of Christ as co-heirs with Him, that we may cry Abba Father. The Holy Spirit then testifies with our spirits that we are children of God and if we suffer with Him we will share in His glory. The glory of man withers like grass and falls like a flower but the word of God endures forever. We are then ambassadors of Christ called to proclaim His gospel in all the nations, for the glory of His name. The word of God endures forever and we are called to become His disciples and call many to believe in Him. If we are His disciples, we are in Christ, having been crucified with Him and it is no longer us who live, but Christ lives in us. We should therefore share in His nature of love and love one another fervently with pure hearts. We are called to demonstrate faith and works by remembering the less fortunate in our society and serving God through them. We should also remember that His promises revealed through His word are true and we are richly blessed, victorious, more than conquerors in Him and nothing can separate us from His love.
Abba Father we praise You and exult Your holy name. Only You are worthy to be praised, thank You for loving us. Thank You for sacrificing Your life by dying on the cross for our salvation. Thank You for Your gift of salvation upon us and all our descendants. Thank You for loving us first, we love You Jesus. Thank You for making us Your children. Remember all those who are yet to believe in You that You may make them a new creation in You. Touch every life that is not in You Jesus that they may hear Your voice and follow You. Only You are worthy to be glorified and praise. Remember all the sick among us that You may heal them all. Be with all the orphans, widows and widowers that You may reach them at their point of need. Be with all the street families that You may provide for them, protect them and restore their lives. Settle the hearts of the people of Tanzania dear Jesus as the mourn the loss of their leader. Remember us all with our families that You may bless us and increase us in all good things. Your word endures forever, we praise Your Jesus. Thank You for Your goodness and mercy that follows us all the days of our lives. The sun shall not smite us by day nor the moon by night. We are Your chosen people, Your royal priesthood, Your holy nation, Your special possession Lord, we praise Your name and lift You high. We declare that we shall succeed in all that we do. We shall be victorious in that You have called us to do Jesus. We shall not fail and every evil snare fashioned against us or accusation against us shall not succeed. We shall rejoice in You always because we belong to You Jesus. Thank You for loving us. All glory and honor belongs to You Jesus, now and forever. Amen
