Spiritual Warfare: 'God Has Always Marked His People'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, February 22, 2021

All must be circumcised. Your bodies will bear the mark of my everlasting covenant.

In [Christ] you were circumcised. It was not a circumcision performed by human hands. But it was a removal of the corrupt nature in the circumcision performed by Christ. This happened when you were placed in the tomb with Christ through baptism.
— Genesis 17:13 NLT & Colossians 2:11-12a GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I praise You and thank You for marking and protecting Your territory—Your people—throughout all the generations from Abraham forward. Thank You for allowing us to be unified under the banner of Your one and only Son, Jesus Christ, and for giving us the symbol of baptism that unites all believers. In His Name, Amen.
