Christ Changes Everything: Good Morning Devotional for 12.1.2021

Good morning! To “believe” means to commit, trust and treasure. This word is the same as the root word that we translate “faith.” From Christ we receive our nourishment (eating and drinking) but also an ability to nourish others.

In the Scriptures, water serves as a picture representing the Holy Spirit, as it does here (see John 7:39). When Jesus ascended to the Father (Acts 1:9-11), the promised Spirit would come to indwell all believers–essentially Christ would live in them, fulfilling the prophesy of Him being “Immanuel … God with us” (Matthew 1:23).

Christ changes our lives, our treasures–He changes everything. As soon as He rescues us and changes those treasures, the Spirit seals of our hearts immediately at salvation. What a treasure when Christ changes our treasures where we no longer trust in other things that can’t follow through in what they promise. Christ can… and Christ will!

Where is your treasure?
