Encouragement From
The Word

May 24

Repent
Greek: μετανοέω
Transliteration: metanoeō
Definition: To undergo a change in frame of mind and feeling, to repent, to make a change of principle and practice, to reform.

1In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”2From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

3Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”4So they went out and preached that people should repent.5I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.

6Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, for the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”7Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.

The Supplied Life by Bill Freeman

The Supplied Life has been republished and available for purchase for a suggested donation of $12.00.

The very nature of the Christian life requires that we live a life of being daily supplied. We begin this The Supplied Lifelife by receiving, and we go on by receiving. The Christian life is a supplied life. It is a life that has already been lived out and preservedfor us in the Holy Spirit. Now, that "lived out life" is received and supplied to us. The Christian life is not dependent on our own resources or any potential in ourselves. It has everything to do with the rich resources of Another life. Indeed, The Supplied Life is Christ Himself. He has been prepared by God for us and is now being supplied and furnished to us. The way God does this is by organically joining us as branches to Christ, the true Vine (John 15:1, 4-5). Thus, the supplied life comes by abiding as a branch in the Vine. Our daily need is to spend time with the Lord cultivating our life of abiding in Him so as to receive all the riches of His Person and work.

Here is the daily devotional for November 1

November 1

The Blood of Jesus

"Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to sheperd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood."

Here the blood is spoken of as the blood of God. How could that be? It is very simple. Christ, in His Person, is a complete human being. He is fully human, yet fully divine. He is a man and He is God. In His one Person are two natures, the human nature and the divine nature. In this person, Jesus Christ, God is manifested in the flesh. He is the God-Man. And the two natures, both the human and the divine, participate in each other. There is a communication of all the attributes of one nature to the other. Everything that is true of Him in His divinity is communicated to His humanity. And He has also brought humanity into God in a proper sense. Thus, we have the communication of all the attributes of both these precious natures in one Person.

The blood is the blood of Jesus Christ and the blood of God. This indicates that in His life there is a mingling of God and man. Not only is the soul-life of Jesus in His humanity our portion; but that soul-life, as it is in union with the Father's divine nature and with God Himself, is also our portion. So when we are drinking the blood and enjoying the blood, that is not only the blood of Jesus Christ, but the blood of God, because you cannot separate these two natures in His one Person. Christ is not two persons. That is heresy. Christ is one Person, and each nature participates in the attributes of the other. This is the divine/human Jesus. In Acts 20:28 the church is identified as the church of God which He obtained, or acquired, with His own blood. The blood and God are not mentioned together in any place in the Bible except this verse related to the church. This reveals to us that the church is deeply embedded in the Father, Son, and Spirit. It is Their pleasure and Their desire. The blood of the eternal covenant is related to God and all that He is. The blood of Jesus is the blood of God. This means that when we partake of the blood, we receive all that God is.
