Scripture Reference: Matthew 5:17-20
When I first became a parent, I set rules for my children to obey and abide. The rules are set for their protection. Children must learn that there are consequences in everything they do.
God is pure and holy. He is faithful and just.
Jesus also said,
We must walk the talk!
As though what He said was not clear enough, Jesus continued,
I am even more amazed when Jesus continued to say,
1) Do you believe that Jesus is in God the Father and the Father is in Jesus?
2) Can you imagine Jesus and God the Father making their home in you?
3) Have you encountered the Counsellor (the Holy Spirit sent by God the Father to teach us all things and remind us of everything that Jesus has taught)?
Dear Father God
Your law is the truth (Psalm 119:142). Jesus is the incarnate Word of God (John 1:1) and the source of all truth. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth (John 14:17).
Give us this day (and everyday) the mind and heart of Christ so that we may truly know You and love You. Fill us with the Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
