THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Blessed are those who can give without remembering,
And take without forgetting.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Do you believe Jesus Christ?
Have you received Jesus Christ?
Have you been "born again" not of the will of man, "but of God?"
If your answer is "YES!" then, what have you received?
"He that hath the Son hath LIFE;" (1John 1:12).
You have received the REAL LIFE of genuine and constant communion with God Himself!
You are given the power to become "sons of God."
Cleansed by the blood of Christ, you are "accepted in the Beloved." (Eph. 1:16)
You are no longer a generic "son of God" (offshoot of Adam), but a genuinely received child under His protectorate, and given His provision.
Having received "sonship" in Christ, you have received "heirship" to all that He has!
What a staggering thought!!
God is omnipotent.
Christ is omnipotent.
The power to do right, "to will and to do" according to God's purposes is IN you! (Philippians 2:13)
And most important of all, you have received
You have received the endless, inexpendable love of God!
You can bask in the immenseness of His undying and Fatherly care.
And you can give it away endlessly, yet it will still be yours!
Today, try giving away what you have received.
That's what Christ did!
Just as it is always His, it will always be yours!
