TODAY'S MANNA for Thursday July 11, 2019
Competent, Able Ministers
He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
2 Corinthians 3:6 New International Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE(s)...
Are you a competent able minister, ALL Christians should be. A new covenant, God willingly entered into a new agreement with us, His creatures, He sealed it with the blood of His "First Born" Son, Jesus, and He sent the Holy Spirit to give us the power to live the life of this new covenant. In this new covenant we are to be ministers (servants & workers) of the Spirit not the letter (the Law, the Ten Commandments). God has made a covenant of love and grace and mercy with us. The Almighty has then turned around and made us worthy and competent to share that covenant with others. No wonder it is life-giving: it brings life to us and through us by His Love and the power of His Spirit!
Father, I thank You for Your Word. God, thank You for Your Love and grace that has saved me from sin and has redeemed me from the law of sin and death. Thank You for sending Your Love gift of Your Son and the gift of Your Holy Spirit so that I can live with You in a covenant of life, grace, mercy, and love. While I confess my weaknesses, I also promise You that I will live to honor Your sacrifice, love and covenant; trusting that You will empower me, by Your Holy Spirit, to be what You are calling me to be. Because I know that of myself, I can do nothing.
In Jesus name I pray.
