Daily Devotional – Our Jesus Exoskeleton

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from 2 Corinthians 5: 14-21. Jesus came to earth so that “we might become the righteousness of God.” Jesus gave up His glory and heavenly splendor for an earthly suit that would feel broken and frail. 

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin[b] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

I was prompted with the vision one morning of me stepping into an exoskeleton. As we accept the blood of Jesus for our salvation, we step into an exoskeleton of Jesus. To the outside eye, we look like Jesus as they see our blood covered exoskeleton.

Imagine for a second the latest exoskeletons in the market that allow for paraplegic people to walk. I heard of a paraplegic gentleman recently that completed a marathon. He ran the entire race with the strength and support of the exoskeleton. If he was not within the exoskeleton, his body would not manage to hold itself up on its own. Why was this man able to run the race?

The exoskeleton took on the role and job to provide the ability for the gentleman to participate and run. God reminded me that it is in His strength that we operate as disciples of His. As we allow the Spirit of God to lead the exoskeleton that we are within, He will give us all the tools and resources to fulfill the job at hand!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for God that you have taken the initiative and first steps in my salvation. You paid with Your blood and have provided for all that I could need. Today I give You control and rest in the exoskeleton that Jesus’ blood has provided me with and follow Your lead.

In Jesus name
Amen
