The Daily Breath of God
Friday, January 20 2012
Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. John 20:30, 31From the time we are born we all are on a journey to find what it means to be loved and have value. For most of us, we try all kinds of things, such as money, physical relationships, education, careers, marriage and all kinds of entertainment. During this journey, for many the mention of the name, Jesus the Christ brings thoughts of religion of some kind or maybe a belief system or even standards by which I might judge myself as to my worth to God. None of which, by the way have any value for the fulfillment of life. What God planned was not a belief system of some kind, but by believing that Jesus is the Christ given by and through his love, we might have life the way our Lord intended it to be. To know the depth of being loved because of who we are, not because of what we have done. On this new day may you rejoice in the life that is now yours without feelings of condemnation, embarrassment, guilt or shame. This new day is yours as his gift so that you may delight in who you are because of Jesus the Christ.
