Dailies~ in His Word
October 25, 2019

Since we were ‘saved’ or ‘cleansed’ from our sins, the day we first believed in Christ Jesus as God’s son and our Savior whom man hung on the cross to redeem us from our sin; we should walk in His love.
    You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God. As the Scriptures say, “People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades.  But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And that word is the Good News that was preached to you.
1 Peter 1:22-25
What that means is that though we may grow old, physically, our spirit will live on forever with/in Christ, just as the Word of the Lord does.   
You know the scripture that says our old man will pass away? That we are to put away the old man and put on the new man. Though our outward man perishes our inner self or spirit is strong as we walk according to His will, and His Word.
Okay, have I confused you yet? What I am trying to say to say is to read the Word of God and do what it says. Be obedient and love one another as a brother or sister; treat one another right in God’s eyes not just man’s.  That means that we need to think of each other before ourselves, and do unto others as we want them to do to us because God’s word says so!
I know it’s not always easy to do it, but the Bible tells us to do these things and, in this context, we can see that it means us as well as the original readers. Sometimes it is a history lesson, other times it speaks of the future but most of the time the Word of God, our Bibles, refer to how we should live.
Heavenly Father, help us to do your Word, to live it, to love it and to be the people You want us to be, in Jesus’ name, amen.
