The grace of Jesus is with us today, precious saints! Breathe it in as it is very life giving in oh sooo many ways!!!!!!! As I reflect upon our Father’s heart today, my mind goes to these Bible verses that are very encouraging in terms of our Father’s love for all of us as His family:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”
God in His mercy has chosen to forgive all those who believe in Him for forgiveness from our transgressions that everyone has, and seat us in the heavenly places with Him to be His forever family!!!!!!!
He IS love and He has chosen to make each of us who chose Him and do not condemn Him to be co-heirs with His Son to all His glorious riches of His forever Kingdom!!! Now that is amazing grace in action right there!!! Bless our Father’s big ‘ole heart for loving us as His!!!
Given that we have been shown such mercy by the God of the Universe who is supreme over us all, so let us keep the mindset that we are all equal in His eyes and seek to put into practice His heart to love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength and love others as ourselves.
He also says that we are to love one another as He has loved us. How He loves us is with love and no condemnation!!! One of the things that I see wrecking more homes and relationships in the world today is the spirit of condemnation. It may not come out in action, i.e. people still live together and go through the motions of life together, but it can be very present in how we talk to one another and the consequences are found in the underlying feelings that develop towards one another. If not dealt with, it creates bitterness and resentment and makes for a less than ideal relationship! Yikes! Watch out for that! It is brought about by the tone of voice when words are shared to another that says “you are less than me.”
Conversations can happen without those tones, using instead, words of love as all things are discussed. Jesus says to love one another as we love ourselves.
If you are being talked to in unloving, condemning ways, speak up and say that is not ok! Do we condemn ourselves? To do so, is to believe the enemy of this life – the devil, because that is not of our Father as stated above – “there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus!!!” Bless Jesus!!! Claim our Father’s love and worth for you and rebuke the devil dude, precious dudes and dames! You don’t deserve Satan’s lies!
Loving the One who loves us with unfailing, unconditional love, loving ourselves as He loves us and loving others as equal to ourselves as co-heirs with Christ as the children of God just makes for one great big, all-in-it-together-the-same family and oh, that thought just makes me smile!!!
I hope these thoughts encourage you to know that you are cherished as a member of our Father’s family!!!!!!! If you are in a place of feeling condemnation, take a deep breath of grace today as this song says here, seek our Father about it and know that we are all loved, fearfully and wonderfully made, and equally deserving of respect, love and grace. It starts with each one of us!!! Much love and respect to you all!!!!!!! I’m a gal breathing in our Father’s love and grace with ya’s!!!!!!!
