Jesus Christ is the Son of God…and he has never been both a “yes” and a “no.” He has always been and always will be for us a resounding “YES!” For all of God’s promises find their “yes” of fulfillment in him. And as his “yes” and our “amen” ascend to God, we bring him glory!
—2 Corinthians 1:19-20 TPT
Jesus is the divine “yes” of God.
He reveals the most complete picture of God in all history. Jesus Christ is, Himself, perfect theology. Anything you think you know about God that you can’t find in the person of Jesus, you have reason to question. Jesus is the fulfillment of all the hopes and dreams of all humanity throughout all time. He modeled life for all who would believe on His name. But God’s will on earth is incomplete without His character, love and power working in each of us who confess Him as Lord.
Prayer: God, my gratitude for Jesus overwhelms me. Thank You for sending Your Son, for giving us such a tangible revelation of Your goodness.
God has countless promises for us, and they are all yes in Jesus. But that is something I would expect, as He is good, and He always has our best in mind. He constantly overflows with words of hope and promise for His people. The stunning part is that the equation is not complete without our “amen!” This means that it is His grace that makes it possible for us to have an effect on the outcome of matters, simply through our agreement, as evidenced by our amen. Things that happen right in life do not just happen because they are right and true. They happen because someone on earth said “amen” to what God was saying in Heaven. Therein is the divine partnership—co-laboring.
Word from the Lord: I have invited you into a relationship, not only with who I am, but also with My vision for the earth’s redemption. Your role is not a small one; you are crucial to manifesting My heart to this world.
