Daily Devotional. For I am NOT Ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the Power of God unto Salvation to EVERY ONE that Believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the Righteousness of God revealed from Faith to Faith: as it is written, The Just SHALL Live by Faith. Romans 1:16-17. Study to shew thyself approved UNTO GOD, a workman that needeth NOT to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH, 2 Timothy 2:15. We are using these verses as an illustration of a Biblical Concept. We’ll look at man from the Lord God Almighty’s point of view as being Created ALMOST Perfectly, meaning man has the ability to Sin and Reject God if he wants to. Christ on the Cross has Finished the Work of making man a Perfect Created Being IN THE SIGHT OF THE FATHER as Christ, through the Holy Spirit actually finishes that Work of bringing man INTO that Perfection. But from MAN’S point of view, we’re ALL miserable failures prone to sin repeatedly, and continually needing to go back to Christ for Forgiveness. It’s not natural, it’s not in MAN’S nature to even THINK the word PERFECTION. When Christ says, “The Father sees you AS the Perfect, Finished Work THROUGH ME, the Christ, as you, oh man, will just have to take My Word By Faith that this is True. It takes THE NATURE OF CHRIST INSTILLED INTO US, (by the studying of His Word), as the ONLY Way we can be bold enough to Believe all this as True. It’s not natural for us to see ourselves as “Perfect” in Christ, so it takes REPEATED Bible Study Readings for this to “sink in” to our Spirit as the Holy Spirit brings this to pass, in us. (ILLUSTRATION), God sees the Whole Finished Picture from On High, Christ sees the day to day Work to bring this to pass for all of eternity. Remember, Christ Presents us to the Father as Pure, Holy, and without spot, blemish or wrinkle in actual Reality. Believe it by Faith, Grow in it Obediently, and Trust Christ Fully that His Word will do this, STRAIGHT INTO PERFECTION. Now, Eternally, Be Blessed.
