Today’s  Scripture: 1 John 4:17

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY FRIDAY 22ND DECEMBER 2023.

When you received Christ, you received His life and nature and became like Him. 1 John 3:1 further explicates this truth. It says, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”

We’re His offspring, born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (John 1:12-13). Think about it, if you’re born of God, what does that make you? Divine! No wonder He said through the psalmist, “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” (Psalm 82:6).

The Lord Jesus reiterated this truth when He said, “… Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?” (John 10:34). The people of the world may not recognize us, just as they didn’t recognize Jesus when He came. But today, through divine revelation, our eyes have been opened to this truth to walk accordingly.

The Bible says “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is” (1 John 3:2). What does this mean? It means our physical bodies will be transformed into glorified bodies at the Master’s return. But right now, we have His life and nature-as He is, so are we in this world.

Recall that after His resurrection, His disciples were gathered in a room, with the doors and windows shut, but Jesus came into their midst through a wall. They initially thought He was a ghost but He invited them to touch Him, emphasizing that He had flesh and bones, unlike a ghost.

Outwardly, our divine nature, personality and identity may not be readily apparent to the people of the world, but it makes no difference. We’re who God says we are-sons of God-not only for the future but right NOW!

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for your life and nature in me; I celebrate my identity, knowing that you created me in your image and in your likeness. I’m a partaker of your glory, majesty, splendour and righteousness. Thank you, for your organic and existential attributes are manifest in me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
