John 1:12

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God...


"The right to become children of God."  What a powerful word.  We as believers have a right to our inheritance, all because your Son died for us.  Lord, we are so grateful that you have made it so easy for us.  There are no steps to follow, no list of tasks to complete, simply believe in His name and receive the Holy Spirit.  If that is not the biggest sign of you being a loving and gracious God what is?  Lord, your Son came to Earth and boldly yet humbly set everything on its head.  We praise you for fulfilling the old law with his sacrifice.  Let us always remember, as we work for you, Jesus' example.  We pray to be as revolutionary, loving, and driven as Christ.

I ask you Lord to reveal the simplicity of Christianity to the world.  Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord  If more people would simply do that first; the truth about the rest, the parts people struggle with, would be revealed by getting to know you.

In the meantime Lord, fill me up with your spirit.  Help people get to know  you through me Lord.  Work through me Lord so others can see your love and in time want to claim their own right to be called your child.  Lord, I thank you so much for how far I have come since you saved me.  You have continued to call me to you everyday and knowing you better is changing everything.  But, it all started so simply.  I have been your child this whole ride; a disobedient and obstinant child most of the time but you have blessed me nonetheless.  Now Lord, let me be a blessing to others.
