We know that those who have been born from God don’t go on sinning. Rather, the Son of God protects them, and the evil one can’t harm them.
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Messiah has been born from God. No one can accept that fact unless the Spirit of the Lord reveals it to them.
If you recognize that Jesus Christ is Lord, count yourself blessed. That means that our Father in heaven chose you to be adopted into His family by giving you the gift of faith. When God gives a gift, He gives it without repentance, meaning He won't take it back later.
New life begins when you first believe and it never ends. Nothing can separate you from the Father's love. Not life. Not death. Nothing. You have been born again of an incorruptible seed.
That seed will grow and bear fruit in due season. God makes many promises and he cannot break His promises. However, many of His promises come with conditions. That's why it's important to be obedient. If you want to be blessed, obey God's commandments. If you want to be cursed, do your own thing. God's promises are spelled out in great detail in the Bible. Go check it out for yourself.
As believers, we have great spiritual authority because we are in Christ. We can pray, and God will hear our prayers. If we pray according to His will, He will answer our prayers. Think about that. The God that created the universe listens to you! Do you listen to Him?
I want to encourage you today. God loves you. He loves you so much that He sent Jesus to bear the penalty of sin that we deserve. What is sin? Anything that runs counter to God's perfect character. Sin is a condition of the heart. When sin conceives it brings forth death. But God can give you a new heart. He wants to give you His heart. Would you like to receive it today?
Have mercy on me, a sinner. I confess that I have been living a self-willed life instead of a God willed life. I want to live for You from now on. Lord, I choose to recognize You as my God and my Savior. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I might live a life that pleases You. Thank You, Lord, for saving me and setting me free from all my sins. Thank You that I now have the promise of eternal life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah. Guide me with Your Spirit each and everyday, in Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.
For our God is a consuming fire.
What is an igniter? It's something that sparks ignition. What is ignition? It's that moment, the act of setting something on fire.
At Igniter Ministries, it's our heart's desire to see the Church on fire for mission.
What's the mission? Making disciples.
What do disciples do? They follow Jesus and make more disciples.
Ask the Lord to set your heart on fire for Him and His mission.
To God be the glory. Amen.
