Lord Jesus, I give my life to you this day. Whether I live or whether I die, I live to Christ. The Apostle Paul said something along those lines in his letter to the people of Philippi. In chapter 1, verses 21-22 he wrote, "For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. If it is to be a life in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me."

This has been the way I have started my day, most days of my life. Walking each day with Christ as the center of my life is a daily discipline of speaking certain words and affirming my dependence upon the Holy Spirit to sustain me. It also means continually reminding myself as Martin Luther wrote in his explanation of the Third Article of the Apostles creed,
" I believe that I cannot by my own reason or strength believe in Jesus Christ, my Lord, or come to Him; but the Holy Spirit has called me by the Gospel, enlightened me with His gifts, sanctified and kept me in the true faith; even as He calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Christian Church on earth, and keeps it with Jesus Christ in the one
true faith."

In this "in between time" as we continue to faithfully wait for our Lord to return, let us be reminded again and again that we are the presence of Christ in the world. The Holy Spirit lives in us and Jesus has assured us that He makes His home in us, He abides in us. This makes all the difference in the world for me, as I would hope and pray that it makes all the difference in the world for you as well, my sisters and brothers in the faith.

Grace and Peace, Pastor Craig
