Sweet Sunday Scripture: An amazing truth for the times we are living in…

My dear children,
you come from God and belong to God.

You have already won a big victory
over those false teachers,
for the Spirit in you
is far stronger than anything in the world.

These people belong to the Christ-denying world.
They talk the world’s language
and the world eats it up.

But we come from God and belong to God.

Anyone who knows God understands us and listens.

The person who has nothing to do with God will,
of course, not listen to us.

This is another test for telling the Spirit of Truth
from the spirit of deception.

1 John 4:4-6 (The Message)

All I can say is, I praise the Lord that I belong to Him! And in these troublesome days ahead, I must ask: Do you belong to Him? Oh how I pray that you do! Want to know for sure? Click here for a clear and simple way to become a dear child who belongs to God. He loves you, and so do I. 🙂

  1. O Jennifer this is POWERFUL as is the WORD always. I’m leaning down hard on this one as I pray and look UP rather than looking around.

    I love you.

  2. We serve an amazing God… He has helped us when the world was against us… Now the difficult thing is raising our children to stay on the path towards God…and to avoid outside influences that can lead them astray…

  3. So much is going on right now. I read my Bible and read the news and simply look around and wonder …how soon, Lord? But we belong to God and this world is not our true home. Thanks for the reminder, Jennifer.
