Daily Bread 10/8/2022


    Daily Bread – October 8, 2022 (The Seventh Day – Genesis 2:1-3) 2 Peter 1:10 – On account of this brethren, instead be diligent to make your calling and election sure; for doing these things, you shall never stumble. Holiness & The Abundant Life Moral integrity and holiness are absolutely essential with God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Ephesians 5:5; 1 Thessalonians 2:12; Galatians 5:21; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Peter 1:15; 2 Peter 3:11). Jesus did not die to just remove the guilt and the penalty of sin – but the very power of it (1 John 3:8; Romans 6:1-23). He died to make us holy, so we can live holy. He died to make us righteous, so we can live in righteousness. So then, let us all be strong in the strength of the Lord and the power of His might, and let us walk over top of all the power of the enemy. The Lord has given us power over all unclean spirits to cast them out; therefore, we should never be taken captive by them. Let us shine as lights in the midst of a wicked and perverse generation, hating even the garments spotted by the flesh. Let us hold fast the doctrines of the Word of God, and take hold of the beauty of God’s ways and the glory of Heaven, so that our hearts may enjoy the pleasures of His life and the presence of the One Who has brought to us the reality of His godliness. This manner of living is the abundant life – which is truly full of joy unspeakable, and glorious! Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
