“This one will say, ‘I am the Lord’s ‘; And that one will call on the name of Jacob; And another will write on his hand, ‘Belonging to the Lord ,’ And will name Israel’s name with honor.
Isaiah 44:5 NASB
Who is your Lord? Who do you belong to? Do you bear the brand-marks of Jesus?
“From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the brand-marks of Jesus.” Galatians 6:17 NASB
Jesus bore the marks for you. Until we are ready to bear His mark can we truly say that we are His? Are we willing to follow in obedience into whatever situation, circumstance God calls us to? Are we willing to take His brand-marks? To go that far for His namesake?
“that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death;”
Philippians 3:10 NASB
Jesus came to save the lost, to reconcile mankind to the Father. Is that not what bearing the brand-marks of Christ is? Willing at all cost to reconcile mankind to God?
Can we say that we are:
“always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”?
2 Corinthians 4:10 NASB
🌹Are you willing to wear the brand-mark of Christ “in order that I” (others) “may attain to the resurrection from the dead.”?
Philippians 3:11 NASB
Continually Seeking Him,
