12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion” Hebrews 3:12-15
Can you believe that the Lord loves us so much that he wants us to be HIS children and partake in everything with Him? To me that just sometimes seems so unreal, but it is true. He wants us to be His children but so many times we let works get in the way of our walk with Him. When we have a legal relationship we always try to see just how far we can go before we break the law… That is why the Israelites got stuck in the desert for forty years. They had a legal relationship with the Lord. They continued in unbelief and disobedience. They were like employees instead of sons and daughter of the Lord. When you are working for someone you never have that close family type of relationship.
But when we are in a LOVE relationship we go out of our way to be with and do things with and for the one we love. Nothing is too hard when we are in love. We would do anything they asked of us and we would gladly do it just because we love them. That is the kind of relationship that the Lord has blessed us with. We get to have the Holy Spirit living inside each one of us. That blows my mind when I think about it. He wants us in HIS family!!! HE wants to love on us!!! Sometimes it is really hard as humans for us to grasp that. The really great thing is that it is true!!! We just need to believe and love it!!! I don’t know about you, but I would rather be a daughter of the Lord then just His employee!!! Have a Blesses Sunday!!! :):):)
