September 5, Today’s thought — A Life Worth Living

the Farmer’s view of the sunrise

Good Morning

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost
that come unto God by him,
seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Hebrews 7:25  KJV

Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost
(completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity)
those who come to God through Him,
since He is always living to make petition to God
and intercede with Him and intervene for them.
Hebrews 7:25 Amplified Bible

What a magnificent prospect!
Does it not take your breath away?
It may well do so;
but nevertheless it is true, gloriously and eternally true,
for it is written in the Word of God.

Grip that fact;
Grip it with your whole heart:
Take risks on it;
Stake your all on it;
Whisper it to yourself with clenched teeth when you are in the heat of the fight;
Shout it to the heavens when you see the enemy about to flee;
Triumph in it;
Exalt in it!

Faith in this one thing can transfigure your whole life, and lift you to the heights of victory and glory that once seemed to you as far off and remote as the distant snows of some shining mountain summit seem to the traveler when, through a haze of sunshine, he lifts up his eyes to gaze as at some holy thing up in the blue air.

Remember,
that the life of sanctification and spiritual power can never be had cheaply.
To bestow it upon us the Lord Jesus paid the price of Calvary.
To receive it we must be at least willing
to pay the price of obedience to His simple conditions.
Remember, too, it is the only life worth living.
Reader Harris

Trust God for your day. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
