Daily Bread 4/26/2022


Daily Bread – April 26, 2022 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) John 5:30 – I do not have power to do anything of Myself; according as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous because I seek not My will, but the will of the Father who sent Me. Jesus Continues To Be Revealed Through Those Who Believe Jesus came to reveal the Father through total submission and obedience to His will. Now, the Holy Spirit has come to reveal Jesus to and through those who will believe (Acts 1:8; Luke 24:49). When we believe the Gospel, we are given the authority to be the sons of God (John 1:12; Romans 8:29; Hebrews 2:4; 1 John 1:2, 3:1). As we submit to the Holy Spirit to do only His will, Christ Jesus is revealed through our lives (Galatians 1:16; 2 Corinthians 4:11; John 17:21-22). Jesus is not just revealed in character, but also in power, so there may continue to be a proof He is the One Who was sent by the Father and that He alone has the words of eternal life (John 14:12; Mark 16:20; Acts 4:30, 5:12, 8:12, 10:39; and Romans 15:19; 2 Corinthians 12:12). The ministry we have received from God can never be about us individually; for it to be pure and true, it has to all be about revealing Jesus and bringing honor and glory to His Name by the express will of the Father. The Greek verb ‘dunamai’ is normally translated as “able” or “can”. However, ‘dunamai’ may also be translated as “power”. Translating ‘dunamai’ as “power” gives more force to the kind of submission Jesus had to the will of the Father. Jesus had emptied Himself of all His own power and ability to be the example of the perfectly obedient Son and servant of God (Philippians 2:7). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
