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.
Will of God and Sanctification
9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 That you might walk worthy of the Lord to all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, to all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness; 12 Giving thanks to the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
1 Peter 4:2
2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
1 Thessalonians 4:1-8
1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brothers, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as you have received of us how you ought to walk and to please God, so you would abound more and more. 2 For you know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that you should abstain from fornication: 4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor; 5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: 6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. 7 For God has not called us to uncleanness, but to holiness. 8 He therefore that despises, despises not man, but God, who has also given to us his holy Spirit.
