Jesus Christ did not come into this world to condemn it, but to reconcile it back to God. This is the truth, until one accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior they remain an enemy of God. The day a person cries out to the Lord upon realization that they can no longer continue the journey on their own is a great day. The angels and all of God’s children are rejoicing in the victory. By the grace of God they are saved and receive the free gift of eternal life. 1 John 3:2 says; Beloved, now we are children of God.
Having a right relationship with God begins with settling once and for all the issue that God is your loving Father and you are His accepted, adopted child. That is the foundational truth of your spiritual heritage. You are a child of God, you are created in His image, you have been declared righteous by Him because you trust that what Christ accomplished in His death and resurrection is applicable to you.
Furthermore, as long as you believe that and walk accordingly to God’s will, your daily experience of practical Christianity will result in tremendous growth. When you forget who you are, and try to produce in your daily experience the acceptance God has already extended to you, you’ll struggle. We don’t serve God to gain His acceptance; we are accepted, so we serve God. We don’t follow Him in order to be loved; we are loved so we follow Him. Upon realization of this truth, then will you find out your identity, and when you find your identity it will set you free.
Therefore, serve the Lord with all your heart and He will bless you abundantly. You will start everyday afresh. You will be filled with excitement, wondering what the Lord has in store for you this day. Trust in God and exercise your faith on a daily basis. Serve with humility, be patient, and wait for the Lord to reveal the opportunity for you. When the door appears before you, step through it exercising you faith in action. You will reap the blessing from above for being a good and faithful servant. Have a great time my friends for you are His children and He takes joy in those who seek Him diligently.
