Good evening! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of received.
Galatians 1v12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.
We all have an "old man" in us before Christ made us a "new man". We all were persecuting the church of God in some way in our life before we were saved. We all have to change and make that decision to make Him, our Savior Jesus Christ, Lord over our lives. He directs us in our new way of thinking as long as we let Him and we take His teachings to heart because our heart receives all that He wants to give through the Holy Spirit, so He can change our minds to become His thoughts and not our own. He is the one that teaches us through revelations from Him working through us, in and around us. By applying what the Holy Spirit reveals to us personally through His will for our lives or what the Holy Spirit reveals to us by His word, we receive all in faith. He calls us to Himself for us to preach Him among those He gives us in our lives. We will be known to some as the one who is giving their testimony in How He saved them from a daily sinner to a daily lover of God. We now are preaching the faith we once new nothing about, we now are His children and living a life of faith in the one who called us for His purpose. He has revealed Himself to us and has shown us what He did for us on the cross personally and now He personally works through us for others. We have received all we need for this amazing life He has created and called us for, before time began. He will continue to reveal to us what we need for this life and we will receive it by faith from the one that called us, our God and Savior Jesus Christ. (Read Galatians 1) I love everyone through the love I have received from Him for you!
