WEDNESDAY'S DEVOTION

Colossians 1:11-12 - “Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light.”

A teacher was talking to one of her students who was not doing very well in school. For some reason, he did not seem to realize his potential. She began to tell him how very smart he was and how that he was one of her finest students. Before she could finish, the student looked up at the teacher and said, “I did not know that!”

The term “agnostic” comes from a Greek word gnosis which means “to know.” An agnostic is, therefore, one who does not know.

God wants you to know Him. The Incarnation of Jesus Christ literally means God with us (Matt. 1:23). God is not “keeping His distance” from us; He has revealed Himself to us in Jesus Christ and cleared the path of all sin and shame, so that there is nothing keeping us from being able to know Him.

It is not the plan of God for us to “sit on the back row of life”, unresponsive and unknowing to all that is true for us In Christ. Jesus came so that we might “know the Truth”. It is the Truth that you know that makes your free! (John 8:32)

Instead of thinking about what has been taken from you, think about what God has given to you, In Christ
. You have a place of God’s strength that causes you to be able to keep going when everything and everyone around you quits. When you think you can’t go on, remember; because of God’s timeless grace, it’s never the right time to quit! - you‘ve got the very life of God in you!

Different translations of Colossians 1:12 say it like this: You are qualified, enabled, competent, sufficient, authorized, made ready, able, made worthy, made fit to take your place, entitled to ...and it is possible for you to be a partaker of all that Jesus died and rose again for!

Now you Know!
