TODAY'S MANNA  for Thursday April 8, 2021
Does God dwell in you?
 
      Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.    And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us.  God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.    Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.
1 John 4:15-17        King James Version
 
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
        Have you confessed that Jesus is the Son of God, that He is ‘the’ Lord of your life?   If you have the Word says that God dwells (lives) in you and God is Love.  The Kingdom of God is now within you!  Have you allowed God to come and live in you or are you still trying to do everything in your own power and strength and your own way?  Now, God is Love.  Love is a verb, an action.  That action must come from the heart (the spirit) of man.   The beginning of love is God, God is love.  He showed His love in the most sacrificial of ways so we could know our incredible value to Him.  The price of our adoption was the emptying of heaven of its greatest treasure, God the Son (Jesus), who is our Savior.  But notice that He did this so that we could be like Him now in this earth, we don't have to wait until we get to heaven.  Jesus was our example of how we were to live and function in the power of God here on earth now.
 
MY PRAYER...
        Loving Father, Abba Daddy, thank You for adopting me into Your family.  I can never thank You enough or ever repay You for Your kindness and Your Grace, but I can offer my self a living sacrifice unto You.    I must confess, in my heart I intend to love others as You do, but my intentions often get washed away with "busy-ness" or timidity or the cares of this world.   Father,  through your Spirit, prompt me to show my love to others in actions rather than just thought and talk.   Father, embrace me with the power of Your grace anew each and every day that I might, through Jesus who lives in me, show forth Your love and compassion on my fellow man.  Help me, Oh Lord,  to not only be the image of Your Son, but to feel what He felt for Your people as He walked among them.   Father, receive the service of my life today as thanksgiving for Your grace (Your unmerited favor) and as my small way of trying to share the love You have given me.  Through my Brother, my Ransom, my Substitute, and my Saviour, JESUS, I pray. 
Amen
