God is your model of a father in the truest sense of the word. He has adopted you and wants to love you in a way you have never experienced. Take comfort and strength from Him—your heavenly Father. He was willing to pay any price in order to save you.
If you are a Christian you have keys to the kingdom of heaven. Your relationship with Christ opens the door for you and gives you direct access to the Father. You do not need an intermediary, for you have an unobstructed access to God.
The moment you became a Christian, the Holy Spirit began a divine work to produce Christ’s character in you. Regardless of who you are, the Spirit works from the same model, Jesus Christ. There will be a goodness about you that is only explainable by the presence of the Spirit of God.
Our Christian maturity is deeply affected by what we sow. Let us choose to sow generously in everything we do in our Christian lives. The harvest we reap will be Christlikeness.
When you read or hear a word from God, apply it to your life and let God bring His word into reality in your life. Repent of any bitterness, anger, or unforgiveness that is hardening your heart. Meditate on God’s word until it enters deep into your heart and not just your mind.
When you consider what Christ has done for us, His grace is overwhelming both on the cross and in His victory over death. SCH Contributor Pastor Jesse Bradley shares encouraging advice to help you stay faithful during trials.
