Daily Bread – June 15, 2022 (The Fourth Day – Genesis 1:14-19) 1 John 3:24 – And he that keeps His commands dwells in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He dwells in us: by the Spirit that He has given. There is nothing more wonderful and glorious than being made one with God. Unity with the Father, the Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit in purpose, desires, and affection belongs to the believer (John 14:20, 17:21-23). This amazing oneness is expressed several other times in 1 John such as: “Hereby we know that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit” (1 John 4:13), “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him, and he in God” (1 John 4:15), “God is love, and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16b). What we can be certain of is John taught that we have our existence in Christ Jesus; and as a result, Christ Jesus is revealed through our lives – which he repeated many times throughout all his writings, but about 11 times in his first epistle (1 John 2:5, 6, 27, 28, and 1 John 3:6, 24, and 1 John 4:4, 13, 15, 16, and 1 John 5:20). This indwelling of Christ Jesus is witnessed by the Spirit we have received. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
