This week’s devotionals are from the “Person of Jesus” series in Mark Moore’s Quest 52. For this series, we are looking to the person of Jesus trying to discover where he came from and what drove him to his destiny of death. This first series is about the BEGINNING of Jesus's life: his birth and the striking events surrounding his arrival. Slow down, read the text, and then let the text read you.
Meditate on the following verses, and ask how they define or describe your call:
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
2 CORINTHIANS 5:20 (ESV)
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1 PETER 2:9-10 (ESV)
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
I PETER 4:10-11 (ESV)
