Saltword for today

1John 3vs1-3
1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

So he answered and said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

We are so blessed and privileged
And highly favored
That we are called sons and daughters of God
Just imagine yourself as the heir to the Royal family of England or an heir to the richest president in the world
Probably the president of the United States
How much more the King of kings
How much more the King of heaven
Maker of the ends of the planets
Seen and unseen
Visible and invisble
How much more the maker of the ends of the earth
We are called His children
He called us His own
What a privilege
You know mankind make so much effort to create an airplane that flies the skies with a maximum altitude of 40000 feet
Jets and balloons fly higher at 60000 to 120000 feet with so much technology and energy
Have you wondered how nature does it so seamlessly
Observe the birds
They neither have a control tower nor a copilot
They do not have a cockpit with an array of bottoms to press for takeoff or landing
They do not have a weather system to help them foretell what is ahead
Yet they are perfect
They use the natural instincts that God gave them to navigate the vast space in the sky
Yet the Lord leads them
You are a child of God
Live with this consciousness every single day
It is a game changer
It shows how much He loves us
How much more we should love Him
How much so we must love our neighbors
Have you observed the ants
They do not have a guide or someone to order them around
Yet they make their food at the right season
You will never see rain caught them unprepared
They gather their food in due season
Have you observed you
How you function
How you work so seamlessly
The fusion of your body soul and spirit
Your blood vessels and body systems
The Lord God made us all
We are called the children of the highest God
All the angels are at our peck and call
He made us a flame of fire
What a privilege
The angles do not carry that grace
What that means is that we are heirs of the inheritance of God in Christ Jesus
What Jesus carries is what we carry
We are so divinely orchestrated that the devil fights aimlessly every day to take you down
Jesus was never defeated
You cannot be defeated
That is why He said we should love Him with all we have and would have and has ever had
Love Him genuinely
With your soul spirit and body
There is so much blessings attached to it
Sometimes it seems He leaves us to us
Sometimes you feel all by yourself
You feel you are alone
You are never alone
He never leaves your comfortless
God is nearer to you than you could ever imagine
You can ask Him to reveal Himself to you
He leaves the ninety-nine to chase after the one
But He always come looking for us
Because He knows the end from the beginning
He knows the breakthrough that lies ahead with serving God and His kingdom agenda
He also said we should love one another
Care for each other
Look out for each other
Not always thinking about what you can get
But what you can give
Pray for each other
Rejoice when your neighbor succeeds
Weep when they weep
Sounds of joy will never cease from your home
May the Love of God that passes all understanding rule your heart
May that love propel you to preach the gospel
And share the good news of salvation with the world
Signs and wonders shall follow you
Goodness and mercy shall follow you
May love open your eyes to the behold wondrous things in His word
May Love overshadow your nation
May Love locate Nigeria
Such that corruption and unrighteousness will flee forever
He gave us a new commandment and said we should
Love one another
God is Love ❤️
