The all-inclusive, extensive Christ as the good land—our Portion

Morning revival verses

Day 1 / Monday

Colossians 1:12 Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you for a share of the allotted portion of the saints in the light;

Colossians 2:6-7 As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, 7 Having been rooted and being built up in Him, and being established in the faith even as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

Day 2 / Tuesday

Colossians 2:8-10 Beware that no one carries you off as spoil through his philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ; 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, 10 And you have been made full in Him, who is the Head of all rule and authority.

Day 3 / Wednesday

Colossians 2:11-12 In Him also you were circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the flesh, in the circumcision of Christ, 12 Buried together with Him in baptism, in which also you were raised together with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who raised Him from the dead.
