When I make my plans,
do I make them from selfish motives,
ready to say “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time?
For Jesus Christ, the Son of God…is not one who is Yes and No.
On the contrary, He is God’s Yes;
for it is He who is the Yes to all of God’s promises.
This is why through Jesus Christ
our “Amen” is said to the glory of God.
– 2 Corinthians 1:17-20 (GNT)
If we claim to follow Christ,
who is absolutely faithful and truthful
and who demands sincerity in thought, word and in deed,
then our plans and whatever we do,
should be in conformity with His teachings.
The faithfulness of Christ
– in whom it is always YES –
is the model for all Christians
who, relying on Christ’s faithfulness
and trusting fully in His promise.
should gladly say “Amen” (So be it)
to Him who is strong, dependable and unchangeable,
and to docilely adhere fully to His teachings.
Have I said “YES” to all of God’s YES to me?
Is there any of God’s YES to me to which I am saying NO
or NOT JUST YET?
REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…
Yes, Lord Jesus, yes and Amen!
Help me, Lord, keep my promise like You keep Yours.
