Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Christ in me the Hope of Glory.”
Text: Exodus 17:6
“Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.”
And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.”
“Christ in me the Hope of glory,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.This Wonder that God chooses to make His Power and Glory seen through mankind is awesome! God’s Power and Man’s Obedience work together to Display the wonderful works of God.
God stood on the Rock and Moses obeyed His instruction to strike the Rock and water gushed out of this Rock in the desert!
God’s Power and Man’s effort worked together.
Moses Prayed, Joshua fought - but God’s Power defeated Amalek!
Oh how humbling and exciting this is for the Warrior to consider; that God works in their surrendered life to display His Wonderful works to all people.
He is the Treasure of Glory in our earthen vessel:
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.”(2Corin.4:7).
Aaaah yes, this is the mystery hidden from the ages that’s revealed in you and I: “Christ in me the Hope of Glory.” Here’s how the Bible says this:
“the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”Col.1:26-27).
The Phillips translation of Colossians 1:27 puts it this way:
“The secret is simply this: Christ in you! Yes, Christ in you bringing with Him the hope of all glorious things to come.’” It goes on to say that “the hope of glory is the fulfillment of God’s promise to restore us and all creation.”
Oh Hallelujah! The Power of God working in our surrendered life of Obedience is Christ in you and I, the hope of glory! We are the Showroom for Our Commander’s Glory to Shine!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
