Daily Bread 12/6/2022


    Daily Bread – December 6, 2022 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) 1 John 3:2 – Beloved, we are now the children of God! And it has not yet been manifested what we shall be, but when He is manifested, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is. Children of God – Sons of Light Father has given us the right to be His children simply by the act of believing on the Name of Jesus, and then receiving His work of grace into our hearts (John 1:12; Romans 10:9-10). As the sons of God, we have been made heirs and joint heirs with Jesus Christ – Who is the only begotten Son of God (Romans 8:17). Through the miracle of the new birth, we were begotten of God, of the Spirit, of the Word, and of the Resurrection (John 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3, 23; 1 John 5:1). Being the sons of God, we are also called the sons of light because we are born of the truth to reveal the glory of God (Matthew 5:14-16; John 12:36; Ephesians 5:8; Colossians 1:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:5; 1 Peter 2:9). Those who are the sons of God have been given the privilege and ability to be guided by the Spirit in their day-to-day activities (Romans 8:14). The Father’s desire is that every son be trained up by the Holy Spirit so that in every way we are conformed to the image of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus (Romans 8:29). God expects us as His sons to be consecrated to the holiness and purity of Jesus, our Savior (2 Corinthians 6:17-18). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
