This was after Saul (Paul) was converted and was preaching the Good News about Jesus. I love what it says because we see reverence for God and encouragement from the Holy Spirit so we can know He loves us. When we are praying and reading daily, asking God to fill our hearts, we get stronger and the Holy Spirit gets louder. There is such peace with that and we can see joy even in this crazy world. What I have realized in my almost 7 years of truly seeking the Lord it’s that buildup of reverent fear that makes me want to not disappoint and work to glorify Him more. Life hasn’t stopped and the bad news still comes but I feel better in my heart and I want to look to Him more. Today is the day of Jesus birth and I sit here wanting to thank Him more than ever because of what He did to show His love for the Father. If we all sat back and thought of God as our Father (because He is) then sought after wisdom from Him totally, the Spirit would encourage us and we would shine that light of Christ. I saw a video the other day and these two guys were doing a skit about God chiseling the sin from the other. After a couple things were knocked off the one guy says that’s enough you can stop. Then the man playing God says, when you look in the mirror what do you see? And the other guy answered me; then God started chiseling again and said you should see Christ.
In Galatians chapter 6 verse 15 Paul says, “It doesn’t matter whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation.”
We need to realize that we all need to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior and die to ourselves living differently as people that mirror Christ. We grow and change daily and it doesn’t stop until we are home with the Father in Heaven. I pray that God the creator of Heaven and earth can see our change and continue to see it as long as we live because we have a healthy fear and are following the encouragement of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Happy Birthday Jesus, thank you.
