The Basis of Christian Life

Have you been able to keep in mind that life does not consist in the abundance of possessions? Is the Word of Christ beginning to dwell in you more richly? Have you been able to put on the whole armor of God, more of that armor and earlier in the day?

Jesus identified the substance, core, and basis of the Christian life in these few words, “If you remain in My Word, you are truly My disciples and you will know the truth and the truth will make you free” (John 8:31).  Setting aside more time at the beginning of each day and during the course of each day for reading, meditating on, remembering, and sharing God’s Word, you will experience new freedom. You will also find that in so doing, the Word is dwelling in you more richly, you have the armor of God, and you find more relief from the care of possessions. God, do bless us so.
