30 Days of Identity: I'm Going to Live Forever
Read this 60 Second devotion. Each day, based on our verse of the day, we will add one new label to our Christian identity. At the end of 30 Days, we will have a life affirming, identity forming declaration. This is life changing stuff! --- Day 30 +2
The Word - “Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life." 1 John 5:12-13 ESV
A Thought - When I was first in ministry, I did a lot of funerals. I used to joke that the seniors in our church prolonged their lives until they got a full-time pastor. One lady requested through her daughter that I remind everyone in attendance at her funeral that they should hold on to their forks. When I was satisfied that everyone was perplexed, I was to remind them that at a family dinner when the plates were being cleared, Mom would say, "Hold on to your forks, desert's coming." She wanted me to remind them them the best part of life comes after physical death.
Hold on to your forks!
My Prayer of Declaration - Lord, because of You, I am a New Creation, I am Forgiven, I am Reconciled to God, I am Free, I am Loved, I am complete, I am a citizen of Heaven, I am God's Child, I am Strong, I am not afraid, I am God's Masterpiece, His Ambassador, His Witness and He Welcomes me. I am a Servant of God (just like Jesus), I am more than a Conqueror, I am Holy, I am becoming more like Jesus every day, I have been delivered from darkness, I am chosen, I am a priest, I am a Temple of the Holy Spirit, I'm on a Mission from God, I am full of hope and I have been given a spirit not of fear but of power, love and self-control! I am Jesus' friend, He has justified me, I am a New Creation, I am the salt of the earth, I am filled with the Holy Spirit, and I am Going to Live Forever.- All blessing, honor, glory, power and praise are Yours, Amen.
Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe and transform your life, 60 seconds at a time. - Scott
