James 1:21 “Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.”
The Engrafted WORD!
To the unlearned and simple resembling,
through grace is extended HIS knowledge so broad.
To understand mysteries which once had been hidden;
To be made as branches, then grafted with GOD.
In HIS VINE are we bound, even sealed
The WORD has been planted within, without fail!
To stretch and to grow, so HE draws us through SON LIGHT!
Stay grounded in CHRIST then WHOSE power prevails!
As HIServant remaining rooted in the only ONE WHO redeems,
Devotional: Romans 11:17 “But some of these branches from Abraham’s tree — some of the people of Israel–have been broken off. And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in. So now you also receive the blessing GOD has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of GOD’s special olive tree.”
We Gentiles share in like manner with HIS glorious riches BECAUSE HE took our wild branches and transformed us by HIS will to fit seamlessly into HIMSELF!
Oh, praise HIM WHO has no equal, no peer, no competition! There is NO other ground which we can stand steadfastly upon. NONE!!
Bask in the beauty of Ephesians 3:16-21, my friends! How great is our GOD! How great is HE!
Ephesians 3:16 “I pray that out of HIS glorious riches HE may strengthen you with power through HIS SPIRIT in your inner being! 17 so that CHRIST may dwell in your hearts through faith — that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of CHRIST that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of GOD!
20 Now to HIM WHO is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to HIM be glory in the church and in CHRIST JESUS throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen!”
