November 21, 2015 Meditation & Consecration – The Intention of Christ For You

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 Intention of Christ For You

Trusting in His Ability to Sanctify

1 Corinthians 1:1-9 [AKJV]
1Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2To the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s: 3Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5That in every thing you are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed* in you: 7So that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8Who shall also confirm* you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom you were called to the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Colossians 1:21-23 [AKJV]
21And you, that were sometime, [formerly] alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has he reconciled 22In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and blameless and unreproveable in his sight: 23If you continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

 

2 Peter 1:1-4 [AKJV]
1Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ: 2Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

3According as his divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 [AKJV]
23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24Faithful is he that calls you, who also will do it.

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.
