I’ve been absent from the blog a few days. I’ve kept journaling, but I haven’t been able to sit down to writeat the computer, but today I am returning. I loved studying with everyone last Tuesday and I can’t wait to see what God has for us in the rest of the sessions.
I’m going to go back a bit to I John 3:1. Look at it in the Phillips New Testament:
Consider the incredible love that the Father has shown us in allowing us to be called “children of God”—and that is not just what we are called, but what we are. Our heredity on the Godward side is no mere figure of speech—which explains why the world will no more recognise us than it recognised Christ.
We are children of God, and its not just a name it’s who we are! We are called to act like our heavenly Father because we are his children! We can’t be who we are any more; we have to be like Christ. And the more we are like Christ, the less the world will recognize us just as they did not know Him.
Father, Help me look like Jesus because I love like Jesus. Amen
