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

Morning revival verses

Day 4 / Thursday

Colossians 2:13-15 And you, though dead in your offenses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our offenses; 14 Wiping out the handwriting in ordinances, which was against us, which was contrary to us; and He has taken it out of the way, nailing it to the cross. 15 Stripping off the rulers and the authorities, He made a display of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Day 5 / Friday

Colossians 2:19 …holding the Head, out from whom all the Body, being richly supplied and knit together by means of the joints and sinews, grows with the growth of God.

Exodus 3:8 And I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites.

Day 6 / Saturday

Deuteronomy 8:8-9 A land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive trees with oil and of honey; 9 A land in which you will eat bread without scarcity; you will not lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron, and from whose mountains you can mine copper.

Deuteronomy 26:9 And He has brought us to this place and has given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
