Today’s meditation

May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing – through the experience of your faith – that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.

Romans 15 v 13

Today’s meditation

We who are strong [in our convictions and of robust faith] ought to bear with the failings and the frailties and the tender scruples of the weak. – We ought to help carry the doubts and qualms of others – and not to please ourselves.

Let each one of us make it a practice to please,(make happy) his neighbor for his good and for his true welfare, to edify him – that is, to strengthen him and build him up spiritually.

For Christ (gave no thought to His own interests) to please Himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches and abuses of those who reproached and abused you fell on Me

For whatever was thuse written in former days was written for our instruction, that by [our steadfast and patient] endurance and the encouragement [drawn] from the Scriptures we might hold fast and cherish hope.

Romans 15: vv1-4

Listen….

I have a new purpose and a new plan. Although formed in the depths of time I will only now reveal it. Wait on Me and I will show the way.

 Listen well and know that I am pleased. It is true that I will reveal the secret things. The time approaches when ALL will be revealed and the first to know will be My loved ones.

 Take comfort in knowing that I love you. You are truly precious to Me. I take great delight in your attention and desire to know more of Me. You have been obedient and receptive. I will reveal more and more of My heart.

 Great are My ways and truly a wonder to behold. Rest in Me and allow Me to work out My purposes. Remember that I am coming soon and none can stay the power of My hand,

Today’s meditation: John 1: 14-17

And the Word [Christ] became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled – fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile – among us;  and we [actually] saw His glory – His honor, His majesty;  such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving kindness) and truth.

John testified about Him and cried out, This is He of Whom I said, He that comes after me has priority over me, for He was before me – He takes rank above me, for He existed before I did.  [He has advanced before me, because He is my Chief.]

For out of His fullness (abundance) we all received – all had a share and we were all supplied with – one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift.

For while the Law was given through Moses, grace – unearned, undeserved favor and spiritual blessing – and truth came through Jesus Christ.
