Dailies ~in His Word
May 30, 2019
It is kind of interesting but I did not recall reading this verse, though I know I did, today it stood out to me.
 Before you Gentiles knew God, you were slaves to so-called gods that do not even exist. So now that you know God (or should I say, now that God knows you), why do you want to go back again and become slaves once more to the weak and useless spiritual principles of this world?  You are trying to earn favor with God by observing certain days or months or seasons or years. I fear for you. Perhaps all my hard work with you was for nothing.
Dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to live as I do in freedom from these things, for I have become like you Gentiles—free from those laws. Ephesians 4:8-13

The first verse I kind of remember but the rest was like; Wow that was so clear what Jesus was saying through the writer!  He shared straight truth to us, through these verses He was sharing it with the people and yet, He was there right there in Spirit sharing this with the Gentiles and with us through the author of Ephesians!

God came to earth to be like us so that we could follow Him to God Himself! He desires for us to desire to follow after Him and live like Him. He wants to spend time with us all the time, and yet we put so much in front of Him, even become a slave to the addictions we put before ourselves as gods. It is sad, but also it is fantastic that our God made a way where we as a people had shut Him out!  It’s like He breaks down the door to our hearts and waits for us to notice Him and allow Him in.

When we see someone we admire, we want to spend time with them. That’s how it should be with Jesus; we should desire to spend time with Him over anything else.
Heavenly Father, help us today to seek You, to read your Words and to hear your voice spirit to Spirit, heart to Heart… in Jesus’ name, amen.
