Glory Seed Devotionals, 2016: Year of the Blessing
A reminder of Jesus’ best work – you…
PEACE be unto you!
Thanks to my younger brother Alan Piper, I am using what was a month (or so) ago dead Toshiba laptop computer! Early one morning its hard drive called it quits, bit the bites, and went deep-six. Alan volunteered to see what he could do with it so I dropped it and an HP laptop off at his house a Toshiba with a dead hard drive and an HP with a dead processor. Now I am using a hybrid Toshiba with an HP hard drive. When he first put the HP drive in this one it had an identity crisis, the internal software said it was a Toshiba the software while on the other hand the hard drive thought it was a HP. After obtaining the reinstall software my Toshiba/HP laptop is not 100% Toshiba. I still have some adding to do on the programs I use but I am back in business! Thanks Alan!
Now for the rest of the story, if you are a Christian at some point in the past you too had an identity crisis. Buy now we have the Heart of Jesus now but once upon a time, it was a heart of flesh. Then came that fateful day when something pushed each one of us off the wall and CRASH, instant Humpty Dumpy and our lives became scrambled eggs and try as they might all the fleshy kings horses and all the fleshy kings men couldn’t put us back together again. Then along came Jesus who began rebuilding your life around his heart. “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NLT)
From the day and time forward when Jesus gave us new life we are continually being transformed. “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:2, NLT)
Believe in presence of the GOD and in the strength of his GRACE!
GRACE and PEACE,
