Of Him

“But of Him, you are in Christ Jesus, Who was made to us (1) wisdom from God, and (2) righteousness and (3) sanctification, and (4) redemption: that, according as it is written, ‘He who boasts, let him boast in the Lord.'”
— 1 Corinthians 1:30,31

Of Him..

…out of, proceeding forth from, emanating and emerging from the Person and intention of God… if indeed we are, this is how we have come to be within Anointed Jesus!

(1) If we have any wisdom attributed to us at all, it is Jesus Himself.

(2) If we have any righteousness attributed to us at all, it is Jesus Himself.

(3) If we are set apart from this fallen world at all, it is so in the Person of Jesus Himself, Who is not of this world.

(4) If we have been turned into something good and useful from the dark and broken state that is our nature, it is only and always because we find ourselves clothed with the Person of Jesus Himself.

Only in great humility do we truly humble ourselves.

Lord Jesus, You Yourself are the Holy One, Most High, in Whom all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily. As we gaze upon You, we gaze upon Abba, Father.

Blessed be You, O God, my God! Thank You for You! You are my All in All.


In the midst of all the generic “thanks” being given today [Thanksgiving day in the US], I long for “thanks to be given to God.”

“Giving thanks always concerning all things in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, TO GOD, even the Father”
–Ephesians 5:20

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with Whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.”
–James 1:17

Giving “thanks” is such a hollow and disappointing thing without thanking everlasting God, the true Source of all the goodness we know.

Giving thanks to God the Father, through Him

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to the Lord.

Whatever you do, in word or in deed, do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father, through Him.

—Colossians 3:15-17
