1 Corinthians 1:9 “GOD is faithful, WHO has called you into fellowship with HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST our LORD.”
The Unsurpassing Record of CHRIST!
Records only matter as numbers meant to be broken.
Measurements set by skill and natural ability combined with Endurance then rest on a platform…awaiting the next contender.
Some linger longer than others but all are temporal because all life is fleeting.
Though some marks remain unmatched, much less beaten, still their earthly host who “made them”…always fades back to dust.
But one spiritual line to ever rise to is the elevated mark and high calling of CHRIST JESUS!
HE WHO has no peer or match..has set the highest record which no one can duplicate nor equal!
Therefore it is solely reached through wholly surrendering in Faith to our Sovereign CREATOR.
By bending the knee and breaking each heart so we’re brought into HIS presence…and reborn!
With our perfect new nature in contrast to our failed old nature, so we endure through life’s trials expectant because HE lives!
So HE WHO made us and set the only record that matters…is JESUS.
Therefore join every record holder — each CHRISTian HE transformed — in singing aloud…
“HE lives! HE lives…CHRIST JESUS lives Today!”
As HIServant also called, drawn and delivered into HIS presence with exceeding Joy,
Devotional: 2 Peter 1:4 “By which HE has granted to us HIS precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.”
2 Thessalonians 2:13-14 “But we should always thank GOD for you, brothers who are loved by the LORD, because GOD has chosen you from the beginning to be saved by the sanctification of the SPIRIT and by faith in the truth.”
14 To this HE called you through our gospel, so that you may share in the glory of our LORD JESUS CHRIST .”
1 Peter 2:21 “To this you were called, because CHRIST suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in HIS steps.”
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which GOD has called me heavenward in CHRIST JESUS.”
Thank YOU for setting the eternal mark at Calvary in our places!
Therefore it’s HIS eternal accomplishment at Calvary that saves us.
So sing with me again, “HE lives! HE lives…CHRIST JESUS lives Today!”
Amen and amen.
