St. John: Chapter 1 verse 12
But as many as received Him,
to them gave He power
to become the sons of God,
even to them that
believed on His name:
We must believe on the Name of Jesus if we want to be a Son of God. Are you a Son of God? If not how about inviting Jesus into your heart today, even this minute, so that you can be a Son of the most High God. It is something us as Christians treasure, having Jesus in our hearts.
The above is taken from the book:
‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
To be a Son of God is a bit different than being a Son of your earthly Father. How can we describe the difference – well that is difficult if you have not experienced it for yourself.
One of the main things is that when you are a Son of God then He is your Heavenly Father, you belong to His family with Jesus His Son as your Saviour and Brother, with The Holy Spirit (that is The Spirit of Jesus that Jesus sent to be with us when He went back up to Heaven).
So we not only have Jesus in our hearts but the whole Trinity
– Father, Son and Holy Ghost –
We are never alone.
So when our earthly father dies and is gone from this life, we as Christians have our Heavely Father with us forever through Jesus Christ our Lord.
That can be a great comfort to know this.
Have a lovely Day today knowing that as a Christian we are never alone.
Luke: Chapter 4 verse 1
Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit,
returned from the Jordan
and was led
by The Spirit in the desert,………
Just think for a moment, have you ever been tempted by the devil? You may have been led into the desert, that could be a place where you have said – where are you God. A place where you have felt so alone.
Remember, Jesus was tempted in the desert but He did not give Himself over to the devils ways. Neither must we, these are the times that we learn more about God and when we come out of that desert experience how much stronger in The Lord we are.
Times of testing are of The Lord, to strengthen our character and to show that we put our trust in Him.
So – praise God, thank Him for your blessings. Then you will come out of the desert quicker than you ever thought possible.
I Pray that if you are being tempted today that you can say help Lord and come away from the temptation what-ever it may be.
We just cannot always do things on our own – we need Gods Help and He is always there if only we can put our trust in Him and ask for His Help.
I PRAY THAT GOD BLESSES US TODAY – AS YOU AND MYSELF TRY OUR BEST TO KEEP AWAY FROM TEMPTATION IN ALL IT’S FORMS.
With Love and God Bless You.
