Colossians 1:11-14

You are being strengthened with all power because of his glorious might working in you. Then you will have complete endurance and patience, joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. The Father rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please strengthen us today according to your great mercy and love so that as the world comes at us with all its trials and temptations, we hold on to you with complete patience and endurance. So please give us moments of silence, listening to your still, small voice, and hear you; so that we would find the patience and give thanks for all that you have done for us.

Lord, you demonstrated your great power over us not by destroying us because of our sins but by redeeming us. You sent your one and only Son to suffer for us on the cross, and he removed our sins forever. Because on our own, we are powerless against sin, but Jesus removed them according to your salvational plan so that whoever believes in him also believes in you and has everlasting life. You qualify us by faith, so we are moved from sin’s darkness into your incredible light. It is there that we have the sure hope of heaven.

Lord, thank you for rescuing and redeeming us so that whatever may come our way today, we know we are forgiven. Allow us to share our inheritance with those who do not know about you or your love; we request that you let us make your power known so they may also be qualified to share in your goodness. Amen.

Written through Pastor Roger Emmons

It is God who qualifies you; you cannot do it by yourself. By faith in Jesus, you know your sins are removed; you are forgiven. With sins removed, salvation, eternal life, and heaven are yours.
