So often we discount the miracle of believing.
Have we thought recently about how amazing it is that we believe in Jesus? That we believe in His Word?
Jesus laid down His glory that He had with the Father to do the work that He was supposed to do on the earth—to show us the character of God in a way that could not be discounted or denied. Jesus was faithful to do that, and His glory was restored to Him. He truly was God and man. He now sits at the right hand of the Father, and one day everything and everyone will worship Jesus forever. That is the story of God, and what gives us hope every day that we believe.
Out of the world Jesus pulled His disciples, and out of the world He has pulled us to Himself. We are His! We have been given to Him. This woman who once was a little girl in the woods was bought with His blood and purchased by His love. It is this revelation that compels us to keep His word, obey Him, and be faithful to His call on our lives.
There is so much for us to know about God. It is limitless! Jesus wants to take us on a journey of discovery of Himself.
Every time we acknowledge Him, read His Word, and believe in His promises, thankfulness should spring out of our hearts toward Jesus. We have been given to Him!
"You desire us to be where You are. You've pulled us out of this world. So know us, pray through us, make us One in You."
