Nibble of Bread : John 17:19

August 15, 2012

Jesus

John 17:19

And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.

So much punch and power in this short verse. Jesus gave himself up for us. We all are evil, and sinful in nature, down to our very hearts. But yet Jesus gave up God status to appear in the flesh. This was done for many things: salvation, joy,peace but as stated here it was done so we can be made holy. Many of us struggle with a variety of sin. Whether pornography, lust, dirty mouths, greed; the list is endless. But, Through Jesus Christ we can be healed. Through Jesus Christ we can be made holy if we lean on the truth. The truth is the Word of God. We must read it, meditate on it day and night, and we must APPLY it in our lives. The rewards of this recipe are endless. The greatest of it being eternal hope and salvation. May God grant all of us the power to overcome the evil in this world by His truth!

    Amen brother K. The New King James Version states “And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.” Dictionary.com’s definition of sanctify is “to make holy, set apart as sacred, to purify or free from sin.” Only through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross and belief in Him as the Saviour of the World can we be sanctified or made holy, set apart, or free from sin. The chains of slavery in sin can easily be broken through faith is Jesus Christ our Saviour. There is only 1 truth and absolute truth and that is the Word of God.

    • Praise God Mike! It’s pretty amazing how Jesus uses the same word to describe himself as he does to describe what we can atttain. So often we all feel like we can never be sanctified like Jesus. But we must preach, teach and live that by His truth we can! Praise God! Thanks for expanding on that Nibble for us!
