TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am a Father who truly wants the best for you. I will give you a better life if you simply listen and obey. Partner with Me through the Holy Spirit and see the amazing things I have planned for you.
READY FOR CHANGE?
At OpenDoor Church, we love everybody and we don’t judge or condemn. That’s why it’s very easy to slip in the door and not have your lifestyle challenged. Hear me on this: Jesus wants to upgrade your lifestyle, He doesn’t want you to live in bondage.
I’m not pointing fingers. It’s an invitation to walk into a greater upgrade.
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” – Galatians 2:20
How can a sinner all of a sudden stop all the worldly things they’ve been doing? They’ve died. They’ve finally died to sin and they believe what they read in this verse. Their old self has died and Christ is now living through them. “That’s first love.”
First Love is discovering who you really are – your true identity. You cannot know and uncover who you are until you stand in that position between the Father and the Son. It’s there that they tell you who you are. If you try to figure out who you are in your own wisdom, you’ll get it all messed up.
You need to hear the Father’s heart as He speaks your identity, which leads to your purpose and destiny. I guarantee you’ll find the old you has gotten a major upgrade.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. – 2 Corinthians 5:17
That old sinner is replaced by a renewed spirit which looks a lot more like Jesus. He’s the first love of the Father and when you get positioned between the Father and the Son, He sees the Son through you. That makes you His first love.
