you receive the gift of my Son Jesus,
you receive me.
No one who denies the Son has the Father;
whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also. (NIV
Father and the Son are one. All that belongs to the Father
is the Son's and all that belongs to the Son's is the
Father's (John 16:15). When we receive the free gift that
is offered to us through a personal relationship with
Jesus Christ, we receive all that the Father has to offer.
we feel like we have a revelation of the Father's love
or not, in Jesus, through Jesus, and by Jesus, we have
complete and unrestricted access to the Father. We need
not ever feel that we are missing anything if we have
asked Jesus to come into our lives. When we received the
Son we received His Father. In John 14:23, Jesus says
"My Father will love him, and we will come to him
and make our home with him." (NIV Bible)
Jesus lives is in us, then the Father lives in us and
He has given us His Holy Spirit as a deposit guaranteeing
our inheritance. What a joy it is to be in relationship
with all three persons in the Trinity!
Father, I thank You that when I received the gift of Your
Son Jesus, I received all that You have to offer. Thank
You for coming to live in me when I asked Jesus into my
heart. I love You and want to know Your love deeper than
I have ever known it before. In the name of Your beloved
Son Jesus I pray, AMEN.
