In Him We Live   1 comment

Acts 17, 28

I.

The source of anything’s existence is constantly necessary to its continued existence.  The Creator of things alone can preserve all.

1.  In Him we live

(1)  Physically.  He gave us bodies and upholds those physical laws in obeying of which our bodies are preserved.  Unfolds nature’s secrets, provides for our necessities.

(2)  Mentally, else our minds increase our misery.  See the mental life of heathen nations and Christian lands.

(3)  Spiritually.  Without Him the soul dies.  When in sin He awakens us, calls us to repentance.  Then all depends on our course.  If we do turn to Him He forgives the past & renews the soul–quickens it.  A babe, but one that grows.  How blessed this life in Him.

II.

Reckon Him very near.  Let no care come between you and Him (v. 27).  Our lungs breathe the air; so we live in Him.

He desires to lead me into green pastures for our greater growth a fuller life.  We should follow and live in constant, intimate relation with Him.
