Daily Bread 5-10-17
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
ref. Romans 8:16 - The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
Can you stand and boldly say, I am a child of God? Or is their doubt and confusion that fills your soul when you think of it? Still looking for that inner confirmation that you truly belong to God? Well, look no further than Jesus Christ! We already know that through and in him all things are possible but we must also know that any other direction will not get us what we are so desperately seeking. We must learn of Christ and believe in him, his guidance, his wisdom, and his power. We must also become obedient to his teaching and his commandments. It is then that we will receive, not from a good cry at the altar or a tearful song, the true Spirit that comes from Christ in our souls. Complete surrender and trust in him and we will soon feel the inner strength that comes from having the Holy Ghost not only dwell among us but in us. This is not an instructional message on how to receive the Holy Ghost, it is a vehement urge for all who have been called to Christ to have his Spirit dwell within their hearts. As we all know and have heard time and time again, we must separate ourselves from the ways of the world and draw closer to the spiritual ways of God. Well, the Holy Spirit is the key to unlock the door to all wisdom and knowledge, understanding and power in Jesus Christ. If we want to activate all of the promises that Christ has drawn us to and has revealed to us through the Holy Scriptures then we must seek for the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. Pray often, believe, learn of him, and remain obedient, and this will all be given when God sees that we are ready. Once the door is opened we will not be able to get enough of Christ and his ways. All that is old will pass away and we will become new creatures. Our allegiance, devotion, dedication, love, honor, and glory, will go to where it belongs. To God through Jesus Christ!!! So let's knuckle down and buckle down and receive the great blessings of Christ today!!! Have a great day!!!
