Daily Bread – November 22, 2022 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) Ephesians 3:17 – That Christ may dwell in your heart by faith, being rooted and grounded in love. Christ Formed In Us By Faith The question demanding an answer is: “Does Christ Jesus dwell in you?” Have you received the miracle of faith that brings the change of spirit, heart, and life; or have you only agreed with a religion for philosophical reasons? Did the Holy Spirit come upon you and give you this new spirit and new heart so that you know you have a different spirit and heart than those which you were born with? (John 3:1-6; Ezekiel 36:26). The faith we speak of is this: that through the miracle work of God, Christ was formed in us; and now by His life we live and walk in the Spirit of God. For those of us who have believed – we have put on Christ, we are clothed with the mind of Christ, we have been made partakers of His divine nature and heavenly calling, we are co-inheritors with Christ, we are united with Him in oneness, and we live by His faith (John 14:23, 17:21-23; Galatians 2:20, 3:27, 4:7; and 1 Corinthians 2:16; 2 Peter 1:3-4; Hebrews 3:1; Romans 8:17). Through the hearing of God’s testimony and the record He gave of His Son, this life of God is realized in us – for The Faith comes to us because we hear the Word and believe it! If your banker writes you a letter and tells you a million dollars has been deposited into your account, and you do not write it into your ledger, then you will only use what you have earned. We must not be like those who heard the Word but did not allow it to be mixed with faith; otherwise, the miracle of faith will not take place and the inheritance will never be realized (Hebrews 4:2).
