Daily Bread 11/15/2022


Daily Bread – November 15, 2022 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) John 17:16-17 – They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in Your truth; Your Word is truth. The Proper Response To Father’s Sanctifying Work That which is sanctified is dedicated – paid for with a ransom payment and a purchase price, and it belongs to God. That which belongs to God, which He has bought and paid for, cannot be used for profane things or polluted with sin. It is a consecrated thing, a holy thing, God’s exclusive property (Numbers 8:17). Those who have been redeemed were bought with a price and no longer belong to themselves – they are the property of God (1 Corinthians 6:20, 7:23; 1 Peter 1:18; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Corinthians 1:22, 5:5). The Father put a value upon the soul of man, and then He paid the price in full. Someone said, “What was I worth?” He did not value us in terms of silver or gold – He set the price exceedingly higher. Our ransom payment was paid in the blood of His only Begotten Son. Jesus has the right to demand we no longer live to our own will, but instead, wholly follow Him (John 1:12-13; 1 Peter 4:1-2). We are His vessels of righteousness, His children of honor, and we are to remain and abide in Him. We are His witnesses in the Earth, and we are to sanctify His Name. We are the example of His will and ways, and they must not be polluted. We have been purified from all the contaminants of a wicked and perverse world and given the glorious honor to abide in Him!
