OUR BIRTHRIGHT IS TO KNOW THE SAVING POWER OF JESUS

Daily Thought

Your Word for 16 April 2024

Colossians 1:13
‘He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son.’

The salvation that Christ offers us and the joy of being in right-standing with God is a birthright, available to us all. This great benefit or birthright opens the door to us being able to know God and to experience His gift (our birthright) of eternal life.

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

His saving power is available to you today. His love is reaching out to you to save you. If you have never given your life to God, now is the time. This is your appointed moment. He is knocking at your heart’s door and waiting for you to open the door to your heart and life so that He can come and live within you. If you are seriously considering this and want to take ownership of your birthright then here is a prayer you can pray to settle this matter once and for all.
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I have sinned in my thoughts, words and actions.
There are so many good things I have not done.
There are so many sinful things I have done.
I am sorry for my sins and turn from everything I know to be wrong.
I know You gave Your life upon the cross for me.
Gratefully I give my life back to You.
Now I ask You to come into my life.
Come in as my Saviour to cleanse me,
Come in as my Lord to control me,
Come in as my Friend to be with me,
and by Your grace, I will serve You all the years of my life in obedience.
In Your precious Name, Amen.

If you prayed this prayer I would love to hear from you. Just send me an email to andrew@alivetogod.com and just say: ‘I prayed the prayer!’

YOUR BIRTHRIGHT – THE PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
You are no longer alone – God is with you. You are His child and as His child you have access to His Holy Spirit as your birthright.

John 14:16 ‘And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever.’

The Comforter is the Holy Spirit and He was sent to be your comforter, advocate and counsellor. He was not just sent to the early church and then withdrawn. He was sent to all humanity for all time and to be with each one of His children forever. (This includes you!) If you will give the Holy Spirit the right of way in your life, you will find that He will gently and graciously prompt and lead you as you grow in your relationship with God.

John 14:26 ‘But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you.’

The choice between receiving our birthright and giving it up is constantly being presented to us. Don’t give up your birthright, don’t sell your birthright for temporary pleasures. It’s yours and you can take hold of it today and make it yours for eternity.
