Daily Bread 1/17/2023


    Daily Bread – January 17, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) 1 John 4:17 – In this the love is perfected within us that we may have confidence in the day of judgment because as He is so are we in this world. Perfected Love The most yielded state of the heart is being at rest knowing you are loved. God wants us to know His love. In this state of confidence and faith, we will receive everything Jesus wants to transmit into our hearts by the Holy Spirit (John 16:12-15). When Father wanted to convince Abraham of the things that He promised, He swore an oath to Him. Today, He has even done something greater for us. In order to convince us of His love and commitment to us, He sent His only begotten Son to die for us at Calvary. We must respond to His love and accept the fact that He loves us and cares for us so intensely that He spared not His Own Son for our sake (Romans 8:32). Love is the key to walking in the fullness of the expression of God. We can know the love of Christ that passes knowledge, and thereby, be filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:17-19). Living in and expressing this love of God that has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit is the witness God dwells in us and we dwell in Him. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
