Quiet Time with Jesus – Greater

Tuesday, 25 August 2015

Jesus said, 

“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.”
— John 12:24

Jesus was predicting His death …

Paul said,

“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.”
— Galatians 3:26-27

Paul was saying that we are all one in Christ. God sends the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”

Our relationship with God is a personal one and it comes through the miracle of God drawing us to Him and our personal will to respond. Surely, we will begin to appreciate and understand the wonder of the transformation in our lives.

How great is the LOVE the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!



My Prayer

Dear Father God,

The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. Surely, no one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.

The Spirit of Your Son in us will convict and change us. We will be transformed into His image, His likeness. Hallelujah!

This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.

Truly, the One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world.

In Jesus’ name I pray.

Father, not my will but Yours be done. Amen.
