As Christians we are Children in Gods Kingdom.
Ephesians: Chapter 1 verse 5
Having predestined us to be adopted
as His children through Jesus Christ,
according to the good pleasure of His will.
Imagine God loving us so much that He wants us to be part of His own family! When we accept Jesus as our Saviour, Jesus then becomes our Brother and God becomes our Spiritual Father.
We belong to the King of Kings, the God of God’s.
We are very precious to our Heavenly Father.

It is good to be a Child of God, who is our Heavenly Father. Yes we are God’s Adopted Children when we accept Jesus God’s Son as our Saviour. With Jesus in our lives it makes a lot of difference to many of us just to know that we do have a Father in Heaven who cares for us even more than our earthly father does.
Our God is the same yesterday, today and forever, His love does not change towards us.
He does not make us love Him.
He has given us a choice, we are not puppets, we have free will to choose His Son Jesus or not to,
it is up to us to decide.
All I can say is: that a friend and I agreed – once you have lived with the Holy Spirit (who is the Spirit of Jesus) you would not want to live without Him in your life. Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to be with us after He went back to Heaven after dying on the Cross for us, so that we would not be left as orphan’s but could be part of the family of God.
It is good to have a Father, if we are not fortunate enough to have an earthly one – as Christians we can be sure of a Heavenly one.
* May God Bless you today and always *
Have you been Disciplined?
Psalm: 94 verse 12
Blessed is the man You discipline,
the man you teach from your law;
Yes, we are disciplined by our Heavenly Father. Often we do not like to be disciplined but it is necessary. The same as an earthly father teaches and disciplines his children, our Spiritual Father needs to correct us His spiritual children. We have to learn a whole lot of new things when we become Born Again, we have to learn spiritual things and let go of all the worldly ways.
From the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by: J.M.R. Larman.
So there we are – what about that then. You see a lot of people don’t realize that God our Heavenly Father can see us where ever we are. Therefore it is no good trying to hide like we may have done when we were children, hiding from our Mother or Father thinking they would not find out what we were up to!
No, God can see us and yes we need to repent so that Jesus can forgive us……well we don’t always want to repent because we may be getting pleasure from what ever wrong thing we are doing.
But as Christians – we come under a different Law…..the Law of God…that He has set down in the Ten Commandment that He gave to Moses.
You may like to look them up in the Holy Bible if you cannot remember them, most of us can’t remember them all on the spur of the moment, so we do need to refresh our learning by not just reading them but trying to do what they say.
Just think how good we can feel when we have overcome some awful thing that we should not have been doing or thinking.
To truly repent is to not continuing doing that unlawful thing!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is very hard to give up lying, smoking, drinking to much alcohol, gossiping, gambling, violence against our loved ones and others of course. But we do have to try if we really want to walk in the Love of our Heavenly Father, who does love each of us even more than our earthly Father does.
Let us start afresh today and do something nice for our Heavenly Father – one nice thing to do is to pray for our family and friends, also for those in need of help in anyway that they can be blessed in some way today. We can ask The Holy Spirit to help us to Pray through Jesus Christ our Lord, who can help us ourselves to overcome with His help to live according to the Law of our God.
* May God Bless us Christians
who are His family on this earth *
