When we encounter Jesus, our desire and determination to know Him more grows deeper. The manifestation of Jesus’s proclamations in the Beatitudes, among others, are meekness, comfort, mercy, and pure heart (Matthew 5:1-13). The elements of Holy Communion are bread and wine and they represent Jesus’ body and blood; when believers partake of the Holy Communion, they proclaim that Jesus died for their sins, was resurrected, and will come again (1 Corinthians 11:26). The Lord’s proclamations also include: His amazing love; He gave His only son so that those that believe are saved (John 3:16); His love is unfailing, and is new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23). He remains truthful in purpose and power and saves by His grace (Ephesians 2:4-5). Jesus’ love for the Father is proclaimed in John 5:19, that “….the son can do nothing of His own accord but does what He sees the Father do and commands Him to do.”.
Jesus’ death and resurrection proclaim the amazing hope of His return. Every eye will see Him (Acts 1:11; Rev 1:7). This gives us a Proclamation of living assurances we can hold on to and further, that we have access to the living God, the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). Jesus has a provision for every promise and we can stand on His promises. The Father also proclaims the amazing assurance of the power that is available to everyone (2 Peter 1:3). When we see Him in His power, and experience His power, things cannot remain the same! As we partake in the Lord’s table, we proclaim of His love, hope, and assurance that we can manifest His glory.
- What message does your life proclaim?
- Are you guarding your heart? Everything you say or do flows from it (Proverbs 4:23).
- Are you using every opportunity to tell others about God’s love and saving grace?
Lord, thank you for Your amazing love towards me. Help me use every opportunity to proclaim Your goodness and love, that changes situations and breaks every chain, I pray. Amen.
