Freedom To Be Loved

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

First you need to become a child of God. We are all God’s creation, but the Father sent Jesus to bring us into a better place with a new covenant… what Jesus did made it possible for us to become born again sons and daughters of God…..He explains it here:

The New Birth

John 3:1-8  “There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’  The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

That’s not too hard to understand……that which is born of flesh is flesh…..that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Our spirits are the part of us that needs to become “born again” through believing in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and His work on the cross as being powerful enough to pay for and erase our sins. Jesus put His blood on the mercy seat…..allowing for us to be clean through believing in Him and asking for Him to forgive us for our sins.

Then that is where we begin a new life with Him. We each have a journey….a plan dreamed up by a loving God. He has set it up that He desires for us to choose it…to choose Him and trust Him. He doesn’t want robots.

There is a path He leads us on……a path of safety and relationship. That’s what He wants. That is what we are made for….to be His family. I pray that today you will open up to Him and trust that He is good.

I’ll have more on this subject soon…… Any questions I would be happy to answer. Blessings and have a great day!
