Word of Encouragement

ESV 2 Corinthians 3:18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

 

Have you taken time to commune with God today? Have you beheld the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ by faith? Have you sought the Spirit of God so that you might glorify God in all you do and say today? Are you growing in His power and grace?

 

“Get communion with God. Your strength to stand, and your strength to withstand all assaults—is from your communion with God. Communion with God is that which will make you stand fast, and triumph over all enemies, difficulties, dangers and deaths. Communion with God will make a person as courageous and bold as a lion….

 

Communion with God is a reciprocal exchange between Christ and a gracious (grace-filled) soul. Communion with God is Jacob’s ladder, where you have Christ sweetly descending down into the soul, and the soul by divine influences sweetly ascending up to Christ. Communion with God is a shield upon land, and an anchor at sea; it is a sword to defend you, and a staff to support you; it is a balm to heal you, and a cordial to strengthen you.

 

High communion with Christ will yield you two heavens, a heaven upon earth, and a heaven after death. He enjoys nothing, who lacks communion with God; he lacks nothing, who enjoys communion with God; therefore above all gettings, get communion with Christ, and above all keepings, keep communion with Christ. All other losses are not comparable to the loss of communion with Christ.”- Thomas Brooks

 

ESV Psalm 27:4 One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.

 

Have you gazed upon the beauty of the LORD today as He is made sweetly known to you in Christ? Spend time with Him; he calls you near.

 

Love in Christ,
