GOOD NEWS DAILY DEVOTIONAL NOVEMBER 14. 2021 (YOU ARE ALREADY THERE)
SCRIPTURE: 1 Timothy 6:16
Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
The religions of the world have one thing in common. They all teach that there is something you have to do in order to get to God. Christianity is not like that. The tenets of our faith teach that it is impossible for you to get to God by your own efforts. Our scripture for today plainly tells us that no man can approach Him.
He lives in an unapproachable light that no man can see or has seen. God, in that sense, is inaccessible to man. This might sound disappointing, but for the Christian, it is the most exciting news. You see, God did something better than allowing us to approach Him. He approached us. Knowing that He is in a form you cannot touch, He came in a form that you can touch in the Person of Jesus.
We could not look at Him in His real form, so He emptied Himself into a human body and declared “I am the Light” that we could look upon. Jesus is the extension of God’s love for you. He is not preventing you from approaching that light. The only way you can approach it is from in Him. The Bible says that your life is hid with Christ in God. Once you are in Christ, you are no longer approaching that unapproachable light. You are in it.
I function from a place of illumination. My understanding is enlightened, causing me to have perfect comprehension, retention, and recollection. I am infused with light, and the life and energy of God are permeating every cell, displacing sickness and disease from my physical body. Hallelujah!
Acts 17:28; Colossians 3:3
