Flesh

October 6, 2020

12 But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. 13 They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.
14 So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
15 John testified about him when he shouted to the crowds, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘Someone is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.'”
16 From his abundance, we have all received one gracious blessing after another. -John 1:12-16

Continuing the foundation of Jesus Christ, let’s study more about Jesus and the flesh. When you welcome Jesus in your life, you are reborn spiritually. You receive a new life after baptism. You have a clean soul, and you start fresh. You begin thinking about new things; you become wise; your motives change as well. You are in God’s family, and that makes you spiritually alive! If you haven’t asked Christ to be a new person, do it. It is worth it. Your flesh is your skin, and you are human. Christ became the perfect teacher, sacrifice, and example. As we study the Bible, we should follow the standards that Jesus does for us, remember the sacrifices he made for our sins. God became man, not man part God. He is entirely human and divine. The one and only Son, who came from the Father, mean Jesus is God’s only and unique son. Jesus is very impressive. No one is better than Jesus.

Father, thank you for blessing us all today with breath. This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. I pray over our flesh that we do not let it control our actions. Instead, let you handle our soul. The flesh is us as humans that make many mistakes. You are unique, and I pray we can continue to be with you to learn about your ways. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
