Thoughts Of Devotion:

On This day, it is important to understand that we were all purchased by a large and high price. Our lives are not our own! We are the Lord’s, and 1 Peter 1: 18-19 says, ” knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” We were bought by the redemptive work of Christ. When we receive the Lord we have ceased to be masters of our own bodies.

Thus our devotion to God should be wholesome and complete to God. We cannot forget that we were bought with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. He himself gave himself for us, that we no longer live for our own desires and toil, but we live for Him! In 2 Corinthians 5:15 he tells us, “and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” Today our life is to be lived for the Lord, we belong only to Him. His desire, his will, his plans are that which we must now seek.

We must not forget that it is no longer about ourselves, it is exclusively about Him! In Titus 2:14 it says, “who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.” What a blessing to know that we are His own people, a people dedicated and committed to do His Will here on earth. Achieving to serve and meet the high calling and destiny that He has placed in our lives. Pray that today we can surrender to the Lord completely. The Lord wants a 100% devotion!

Acts 20:28 (NKJV) — 28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.

Titus 2:14 Version (NKJV) — 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself Hisown special people, zealous for good works.

1 Peter 1:18 (NKJV) — 18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 (NKJV) — 14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
