Let me be very plain, we are not righteous because of our own doing, but because of His. We do not do right because we have to, we do right because, out of love, we want to please Him. Our holiness is made possible as we yield our lives to His Holy Spirit.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
We are His kids. We have been given His spirit. We have his DNA. WE must however chose to either live for Him or live for the Devil. Holiness comes about when we surrender to His Spirit and allow God to have total control over our lives.
Choose you this day whom you will serve. You cannot serve two masters, only one.
Prayer: Father, thank you for giving me the right to live holy because of Jesus. May I honor you. Help me to show others your love and kindness. May others see in me the face of Jesus. I pray in Jesus name, amen.
Make this your families verse to live by.
Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
