Jesus is God, My Lord and My Savior!

John 1:1 & 1:14 (KJV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

God came in the form of flesh, lived on the earth as a human being to show me how to live my life as He did. He took upon himself my horrific sins and the penalty exacted by the Lord of God for breaching His holy laws. He substituted my life for His when He …

1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) Who his own self bare [my] sins in His own body on the tree, that [I], being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes [I AM] healed

As much as I may walk, and talk to Jesus – my Savior, strive to live like Jesus my Savior I in my flesh I can never be “good” enough. Each day as  I live my life I am thankful Father God that the Godhead knew my weaknesses and my inability to do that which is right in Your sight. So, the one who became a human being to open the channel of direct communication between the Godhead and me returned back to where He came from.

Acts 1:9-10 (KJV) And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel.

His ascension to heaven placed my redeemer in the temple as the blood-bought sacrifice for me.

Romans 8:34 (KJV) Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Now He petitions God-The-Father on a moment by moment basis for me as I live my life in the flesh and think thoughts that are egregious to God.  Speak words that are hurtful to myself and or others, and as my body weakens and becomes ill, He applies His healing blood to my illnesses according to His will and His purpose. Father, it is so freeing to know that I am not under any type of condemnation because you sent your Son to die in my place. That He arose as the Lamb slain from the foundations of the world just for me and intercedes just for me. I am so blessed to know that condemnation is no longer attached to my name because I am a blood bought Child of God. The judgment of the law required a sacrifice for my sins, and Jesus paid the price with His blood for me.

Father, it is so freeing to know that I am not under any type of condemnation because you sent your Son to die in my place. That He arose as the Lamb slain from the foundations of the world just for me and intercedes just for me. I am so blessed to know that condemnation is no longer attached to my name because I am a blood bought Child of God. The judgment of the law required a sacrifice for my sins, and Jesus paid the price with His blood for me. This sacrifice is priceless.  There is nothing that I could do and or pay to make this real in my life.  The ransom was paid for me to have access to the throne of grace. When I approach your throne Father, you see me as a sinless individual washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus.  How that could be is not imaginable by me because I know who I am.  Like Isaiah I can surely say that I am a wretched and sinful person purified by the refining fire of the blood of Jesus Christ, my Lord, my Savior, my God and my friend who loves me more than I deserve to be loved. Therefore, I can say – with a full penitent and grateful heart

3 Blessed be the God and Father of [my] Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten [me] again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible [I am so looking forward to having a body that is incorruptible, undefiled, and [one] that fadeth not away]. 5  Father I also know that [I am] kept [each day] by the power of God through faith unto salvation [ I am looking forward to the day when you will say to me “Well done – you good and faithful servant . . . .”

Father, I know that you love me because you sent your most precious gift to die in my place. There are no words to express my gratitude, and for some reason, the word “love” does not convey what I feel for my precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is my ever present God and friend. Amen!
