2018 – WEDNESDAY 13 JUNE
1 Timothy 1:12
“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry,”
Stop and consider what Jesus Christ has done for you – and you will be forever thankful.
1. HE HAS ENABLED ME
Before I came to Christ I was unable to come to God – nor was I able to overcome the wretched pull of sin and death.
In Christ I am now able to overcome all the works of the evil one and reign in this life by the working of His power within me.
I AM WELL ABLE.
2. HE HAS COUNTED ME
God does not count our shortcomings and failures. God counts us righteous in Christ.
Live in such a way that God can count you faithful.
He has counted me as forgiven
He has counted me as righteous
He has counted me as worthy
He has counted me as favoured
He has counted me as His own
I AM COUNTED AS FAITHFUL
3. HE HAS PUT ME
The great outworking of God’s plan – is to plant you in a place where you can flourish and be a blessing to others.
Until you know – it is God who has put me here – you will always be looking over the fence for greener grass.
When you can turn where you are into a place of ministry – you know God has put you there.
I AM PLANTED IN A PLACE OF MINISTRY
4. HE HAS MADE ME GLAD
Thankfulness is the result of people finding their meaning and purpose in and through Jesus Christ.
Christianity is a happy religion.
Giving thanks is central to everything we do.
The work of God’s grace in our lives always leads to thankfulness.
