Born of God

1John-4_7-8 imageDay 17 – Born of God

Know God. Love God. Being born of God you will desire to love others, even your enemies.

It says in 1 John 5:1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him.

It also says in John 3:3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Without love, we do not have God. Without God we would live in torment. I’ve been there… It’s not a pretty place to be. In fact, it’s just like it says… torment. Torment is defined as severe physical and mental agony. I was holding onto the hurt of my past. In fact, clinging tightly to it. Until I let it go, the Holy Spirit couldn’t work in me.

Seek to forgive and seek forgiveness for yourself. Release the torment. Expel it. Let the Holy Spirit in. Let God’s love in and be blessed. God is love!

Prayer: Dear Father Yahweh, I lift up the reader of this devotion to You. I ask that the Holy Spirit would grip their heart with Your love causing them to let go and let Your love in cleansing them of the torment. Therefore, in return they would love everyone, as You do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
