Happy Tuesday! While this is a continuation of the reading, the writer of 1 John is reminding us of who we are and why. Enjoy reading.

“I am writing to you who are God’s children because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus. I am writing to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginningI am writing to you who are young in the faith because you have won your battle with the evil one. 

I have written to you who are God’s children because you know the Father.
I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginningI have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong. God’s word lives in your hearts, and you have won your battle with the evil one.” 1 John 2:12-14NLT 

Believe what these words say about who you are (e.g., you are strong, you have won your battle with the enemy) and why (e.g., because you know the father, because you know Christ, because your sins have been forgiven). Take a screenshot of the verses above and re-read it to yourself several times today. Let the words encourage and strengthen you and your faith.

Father God, we thank you for your goodness and mercy. Lord, you have been so gracious and merciful toward us. Lord, continue to direct our path and our thoughts as we go throughout this day. Direct our tongues to speak words of encouragement, peace, truth and love to one another. Lord, be with those who are struggling with finances – Lord, make provisions. Lord, be with those who are suffering with the loss of a loved one – Lord, comfort them and let them feel your presence today. Lord, touch the sick and chronically ill – Lord easy their pain and heal them. Lord, continue to work in and through us. Change us. In Jesus name, amen.

Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
