Quiet Time with Jesus – Loving God

Wednesday, 2 September 2015

When each of us was conceived, we received our genetic makeup from our parents.

Jesus said,

“ God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
— John 4:24
“Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.”
— John 3:6

What an amazing statement!

Physically, we received our DNA through our parents, but spiritually, our spirit has been born of God and regenerated by His Spirit.

The perfect will of God is that man are made in His image. God is making it possible when He gives us the Holy Spirit to live in us. The Holy Spirit is our Helper, Counselor and Teacher.

Paul says that believers have put on “the new self” … John says that believers are those who are “born of God” … Both Paul and John call believers “children of God”.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
— 2 Corinthians 5:17
 

 

My Prayer

Dear Father God,

It is through Your amazing grace showered upon us that we can be born again – as children of God.

It is our desire to reflect Your glory and become more and more like You – showing the world that we are truly the children of God.

It gives You pleasure to dwell among us, teaching us and loving us.

We love because You first loved us. How can we love You more?

Father, teach us.

In Jesus’ name I pray.
Amen.

Jesus said,

“If you love me, keep my commands.”
— John 14:15

Paul said,

“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
— Ephesians 5:1-2
“Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.”
— Ephesians 6:24

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