WEEK 1, DAY 5
Silence and stillness before God (2 Min)
Read Philippians 1:1-11
Filled to give glory
Did you see what Paul said? We are filled with the fruit of righteousness. Filled!! This is nothing we did! This is done, finished, completed. We have been made righteous. When the gas tank is on full, you don’t stop for gas – you go! Jesus filled us with his righteousness (His right standing with the Father) and because we have that rightness we can now go and bring glory to the Father. We don’t live our lives looking for something, we live our lives as those that have something. What we have is the acceptance and joy of our Father.
Why does it matter that we are full of Christ’s righteousness?
If I’m full of righteousness, when and where can I glorify God?
Father, I am amazed that you have forever changed me through your son Jesus Christ. He not only forgave me of sin, but also filled me with his perfect righteousness. Teach me today to use what you have filled me with to bring you glory and to give you praise.
