“Do you fully understand the impact of the changed life I have given you, or has your heart become dull over time? Remember how I changed your life when you entered covenant with Me? Remember how dead you were before I brought you to life through your acceptance of Jesus as your Lord? We entered covenant then. You promised to have Him be Lord over your very existence; all that you are and everything that you have. You were purchased by His blood. At that time, My covenant promise to always be your Father and to conform you into His image also went into effect. Moment by moment, you are being made into His likeness, so that others can see Jesus in you and embrace Him, just like you did.
"When your work is finished, I promised to bring you home to Me. Don’t minimize the importance of Our covenant. It has a daily benefit for you and many others, and an eternal benefit when your task is completed. Stir up your first love energy again. Do not become weary because of the refining I am doing in you. Benefit others by your new life. Bring the love of Jesus to them today.”
Matthew 25:23 NIV
“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!’”
John 3:5-8 NIV
5) Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6) Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.
7) You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’
8) The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
2 Cor. 5:17 AMP
Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ, (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
2 Cor. 5:20a NIV
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.
So often the cares of our days quiet our hearts to the astounding event that has happened to each of us who have given our lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We forget that we are made new in Jesus so that we can learn of Him, submit to our Father’s promise to us and then do His work on this earth. That is our sole purpose for taking each new breath.
If that is really the truth in Christ, how does our life compare to the intent God has for it?
Help me to remember and submit, Lord,
