My Dear Holy, Heavenly Father God, you are the magnificent creator of the whole universe. In your awesome divine creative plan, you created the heavens and the earth. You declared that you, the triune God would make a people in your own image, and You did and I thank you. In your infinite wisdom, you knew that your creation would need a Savior, so your Son Jesus became the designated Savior. You chose to send your only begotten Son and I thank you that you have “blessed us in the heavenly realm with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” (Ephesians 1:3)
I thank you Jesus that you, before the foundation of the earth you knew that you would be the one to come to earth to redeem your people from their sins. You gave up your heavenly position and walked out the Word in human form when you came to earth to show us how to live as image bearers of God. But more importantly, you bore the stripes for our healing and then died on that infamous cross so that we have redemption, forgiveness of our sins and eternal life through your shed blood kingdom. You triumphed over Satan; conquered death and cancelled our debt to legal rules and charges we could not pay. Thank you that we, through faith in you continue to be rooted, strengthened and built up in our inner man, in Your Name. (Colossians 2) You then left us, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth.
Thank you Holy Spirit for being our Advocate who “came to us from Holy Father God and was sent to us from Jesus.” (John 14) Thank you for revealing to us God’s thoughts, wisdom and mysteries—mysteries that have been hidden since the foundation of the earth. Thank you for revealing to us through the Word of God what is yet to come. (1 Corinthians 2) You instruct, teach , correct, train and even rebuke us through the Word, and I thank you. I thank you dear Holy Spirit for your anointing and the bestowing of your gifts upon us so that we can fulfill God’s purpose and will on the earth.
On this the day we celebrate You, Jesus; we celebrate your resurrection and we honor your sacrifice on our behalf. We acknowledge you as Lord and and Savior. We truly honor the triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in Your Name, Jesus. Amen.
Dear Dr. Wooten,
Your blog is a truth and testimony of the Lord Jesus goodness. I truly wanted to read your blog several weeks ago; however, the attacks of the enemy have been real. I would finish one thing and another thing was due…anyway…I decided to sit down and get some words of wisdom. Thanks for your post!!! They often have Jesus still on the CROSS in images at churches but thank God he got up!!!! He got up!!!! So I can live and stand this very hour.
