Exalting Christ (July 6, 2013)

Colossians 1:18 “He is the head of the body, the church:  who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”

“Lifelong Goal:  In Christ you will surrender to His lordship and worship him in Spirit and truth.” {p. 204, “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

Jesus is our friend; He is also our Lord.  We are to exalt Him because of His position, His authority, and His work.
“God’s goal is the lordship of Christ.  Christ rules in your heart.” {p. 205, “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

To honor Christ, you should be committed to spending time with the Lord daily in prayer, scripture stud, and meditation for the rest of your life.

[Read Matthew 26-28]

Matthew 26:12-13 “She has poured this perfume on me to prepare my body for burial.  I tell you the truth, wherever the Good News is preached throughout the world, this woman’s deed will be remembered and discussed.”

Father God,
I am committed to becoming more like Christ every day.  Help me put aside my own desires and be filled with the desire to do Your will Your way.  I want to surrender to Jesus’ lordship in my life.  Help me set my mind on pressing toward the mark of the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus.  Amen.
