It just dawned …

It just dawned on me, when I hear of see people quote John 3:16 the only part that is quoted is “For God so loved the word that He gave His only begotten Son…..”. I realize because I hear or see that some much that is all I know. There is more to the scripture. Yes, we know that God loves us by giving His Son, but he didn’t give us His just because love us. He gave us His Son so that we would believe in Him THEN so we may HAVE everlasting life. God’s love is so much deeper than we may know and can comprehend. God gives us love, so just accept it. Next time you hear or see someone half-quote John 3:16 know that there is more to that scripture and remind them as well.

(John 3:16) 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Its my rebirthday! I give myself away- William McDowell

Today I am 1 year spiritually old. Like a baby I have learned who my Father is and the rest of my family the Son and Holy Spirit. My crying (communication) is my prayers. I slowly learned to talk in faith and walk in faith. Like a baby I’ve tried to imitate my Father and do as He does. When I’ve misbehaved He corrected my behavior and continued to love me. My lullabies are gospel music. The bible is my food. I started out with a few scriptures and progressed to several chapters at a time. My day care is church and fellowship meetings with fellow Christians. I slowly came to self awareness that I am a born again Christian. Now I’m learning self identity in Christ. I am my Father’s daughter. I’ve grown so fast in my spirituality and will continue growing in Jesus name. I will celebrate my rebirth today by continuing to live as a living sacrifice to my Father and saying thank You, Father for another day. All honor, praise and glory to You. May Your will be done in my life now and forever. In Jesus name. Amen! Happy 1st rebirthday to me!
