    Day 21: We Live In Him

    Affirmation #3 “As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.” (John 6:57)             I remember seeing spectators raising various signs up at sporting events they were attending. Often some of these signs proudly display the most famous Bible verse of all time. It reads, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (Joh 3:16)  It is a beautiful summary of the entirety of the Bible. In this verse it says, “That whoever believes in Him should not…

    Day 22: Power To Be Children

    Affirmation #4 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13)             I grew up most of my life without my Dad. I never really understood what I missed, until I became a dad myself. I began doing all these things for my children that I never experienced. It was bittersweet for sure. I was so happy to provide my kids the love, affection and personal connection I never experienced,…

    Day 23: To Be One With The Father

    Affirmation #5 “And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.” (John 17:11)             “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amo 3:3) This ancient proverb provides a descriptive word picture. Can two people walk together unless they agreed beforehand on the direction of their travel? It reminds me of a game we played in school. You had to stay together and you could not break the group up. An example of this would be a light…

    Day 24: Do His Works

    Affirmation #6 “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.” (John 14:10-11)             It has been my experience that when you start talking about works, and what God requires of us a debate always breaks out. Well meaning believers often have a few verses they recite and the entire occasion ends upon divided lines.  Brothers and Sisters, please show…

    Day 25: Speak His Words

    Affirmation #7 “Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.” (John 8:28)             Robert Wilson and Arno Penzias discovered something called “Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation.” This “CMBR” is found in outer space. It located in just about every corner of the entire universe. They claim it is the remaining effect of the “Big Bang.” As a believer, I agree there was a big bang, as the saying goes; “God spoke, and “Bang!” it happened.” This noise is also…
