So Will You!

You will have trouble in this world, peace in Christ, and the recovery of your heart because Jesus conquered death, hell, and the grave. We are raised up with Him and seated in Him in heavenly places! Walk in Christ-Confidence today, because He overcame the world, so will you! - Jimmy

Past Tense

Have you ever noticed that the second chapter of the letter to the Ephesian believers is in past tense? The essence is; “You used to be that, but now, in Christ, you’re this. You were dead in sin, now you’re alive in Christ!”

Jesus flipped the script and now you can embrace and enjoy total life victory today! - Jimmy

Peace That Rules The Heart

Today, I am going to let the Bible speak for itself. This is the Amplified translation and it expands the definitions of the key words in this verse. Read it slowly and carefully, resting upon each key word and allow the Holy Spirit to breathe on this word for you today. - Jimmy

Colossians 3:15 (AMP)
And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

The Favor of God

It is obvious when you encounter God’s favor on a person’s life. They exhibit His love, joy, and peace, and they exude an unmistakable and unshakable “Christ Confidence.”

According to scripture, these characteristics come through three avenues: humility, contrition (godly sorrow and repentance), and they give God’s Word first place.

Today, take a moment to check yourself in relation to humility, contrition, and hunger for God’s Word. Ask Him to release and exhibit these virtues through your life today. - Jimmy
