Scripture Quote: I have died, but Christ lives in me. And I now live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me. (Galatians 2:20)
We are children of the most High God - We are joint heirs with Jesus! God has always known who his chosen ones would be. He had decided to let us become like his own Son, so that his Son would be the first of many children - We are His sons and daughters! God planned for us to do good things and to live as he has always wanted us to live. That's why he sent Christ to make us what we are. We can follow Him toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us to Himself through Christ, our Savior.
Understand that we do participate in our journey to be ever closer to God - We are responsible to study and be obedient to God's Law, which is the narrow path He has provided for His Children. Everything we need to follow Christ, God has provided. We are so blessed and so loved that it's hard to express the depth of that - But even if it can't be expressed in words, it can definitely be felt and experienced through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Through Christ’s blood we receive justification, sanctification by his Spirit, and eternal glory through his merits and intercession. These are the blessings held out to us by our Heavenly Father!
Today’s meditation: Revere God’s Law and rest in His great love.
Memory Verse: Only let us live up to what we have already attained. (Philippians 3:16)
