Remember

20yearspolaroid

Many times in the Scriptures we are reminded to “remember”. This week, we in MentorLink formally gather to Remember all that He has done in and through us in these last twenty years.

Remembering is not about us but Him. Would you take a few minutes to remember what He has done in and through your life and ministry in recent years? Give Him praise for His goodness, faithfulness, grace and mercy toward you.

I Have Been Crucified

love-699480_1280

This week I have spent some time reflecting on Galatians 2:20.

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

This is such a rich verse filled with essential truth for walking in this world day-to-day.

Take a moment to ponder these questions:

  1. What truths from this verse stand out to me?
  2. How could Jesus’ crucifixion affect my daily life?
  3. What part does my faith in Jesus play in my daily life?

Take a moment to thank Him for His love for you.

What He Did

books-1155565_640

I spent some time in Ephesians 1 this morning. Though I’ve read and studied it many times, it still amazes me that the Father has done so many things for us.​

Here is the passage:
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,
4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love
5 he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will,
6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,
8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight
9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ
10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will,
12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.
13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,
14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

This is such a rich passage. Take a minute to re-read and note everything He has done for you in Christ. Then spend a few minutes thanking the Father.
