Edifying the reader with solid foundational scriptural understanding aimed at rooting and grounding believers in faith in Christ for personal sanctification, through thoughtful and prayerful meditation on concurrent passages which focus on essential scriptural truths.
Very little occasional to no commentary will be included in the Daily Meditation and Consecration as it is intended for the reader to focus his/her being on Christ, looking to the Spirit of God to quicken the understanding. This is a time to consecrate one’s self in a dedicated act of worship to the Lord, as you read and meditate on the Words of Holy Scripture, and draw life from the Spirit of God in personal fellowship with Him.
Get alone, take communion, light a candle if you want, and set aside this time just for you and the Lord.
The Love of God Perfected
To Walk, Even as he Walked
14I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
1 John 2:3-6 AKJV
3And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4He that said, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.5 But whoever keeps his word, in him truly is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.6 He that said he stays in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
1 John 4:7-21 [AKJV
7Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God. 8He that loves not knows not God; for God is love. 9In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12No man has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. 15Whoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him, and he in God.16And we have known and believed the love that God has to us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him.
17Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love. 19We love him, because he first loved us. 20If a man say, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21And this commandment have we from him, That he who loves God love his brother also.
American King James Version
Produced by Stone Engelbrite
This is a new translation of the Bible, based on the original King James Version. It is a simple word for word update from the King James English. I have taken care to change nothing doctrinally, but to simply update the spelling and vocabulary. I have not changed the grammar because that could alter it doctrinally.
I am hereby putting the American King James version of the Bible into the public domain on November 8, 1999.
