Daily in Your Presence - Oct. 17

Day 291

ALL IN ALL

Here there is no Greek or Jew,

circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian,

slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.

Colossians 3:11

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I see the prejudice in people's lives—even in My children—and it disturbs Me greatly. Have I not created all equally? Are not all human hearts moldable? Did I not die for every person on the face of this earth? Let your love be an example to others, My child. Will you let Me make your heart a channel of open blessing that accepts all regardless of race, color, or creed? Will you tell them I love all people the same?

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Jesus, You cross every barrier of race, creed, or color. You're a gentle lullaby to the babe in arms and a loving father to every child. To the lonely, You're a companion, and to the hurting, You are a comforter. To the parent, You're a guide, and to the aged, an encourager. And to me? Lord, You're all those things and more. You're my all in all.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Jesus is all in all—to all.
