What Must I Do To Be Saved Mid Way
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.
Prayer of Jesus
Christ Prays to the Father
1These words spoke Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify your Son, that your Son also may glorify you: 2As you have given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him. 3And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4I have glorified you on the earth: I have finished the work which you gave me to do. 5And now, O Father, glorify you me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was.
6I have manifested your name to the men which you gave me out of the world: your they were, and you gave them me; and they have kept your word. 7Now they have known that all things whatever you have given me are of you. 8For I have given to them the words which you gave me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from you, and they have believed that you did send me. 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which you have given me; for they are yours. 10And all my are yours, and your are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep through your own name those whom you have given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name: those that you gave me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13And now come I to you; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth. 18As you have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21That they all may be one; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me.
22And the glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them, as you have loved me. 24Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me: for you loved me before the foundation of the world.
25O righteous Father, the world has not known you: but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me. 26And I have declared to them your name, and will declare it: that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
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.
