Through the Living and Abiding Word of God

Every culture around the world  appoints leaders  for their people.     The leader might carry the role of a chief,  president,  king,  queen,  emperor,  or whatever their society determined.    No matter what the leader’s title,  there is a similarity  in the expectancy  of every leader  and his family.     They must act like leaders.     They’re not supposed to be slovenly,  weak,  spineless,  indecisive,  careless,  or anything else along those lines.     And,  they’re supposed to have the bearing  of a real leader.     They need to show trustworthy characters,  high ideals,  strength,  and everything else  that will serve the people righteously.

By faith we are children  of God Almighty — the King of kings,  LORD of lords,  and God of gods.     We belong  to the royal family  of God.     We were born  into the family of God  when we accepted Jesus  as our Savior.     So,  we no longer belong  to this world.     1 Peter 1:23 tells us,

For you have been born again  not of seed  which is perishable  but imperishable,  that is,  through the living and abiding word  of God.

Because we now belong  to the family of God,  we ought to act  as a child of the King should act.     A child of the King has the dignity  of belonging to the King’s family.     Every child of the King is joyfully traveling  through this earth  until our heavenly home is reached.     Since our heavenly Father is holy and righteous,  we honor Him  by trying to imitate His ways — just because we love our Abba, Father.

As heirs  of the glories of heaven,  we strive to learn  what our heavenly Father is teaching us  in His word.     We are careful  to stay away from the entrapments  of worldly philosophies,  greeds,  lusts,  hatreds,  idolatries,  and the like.     We always keep the love  of our Savior  in sight,  so that our purpose and goal are not lost  in the confusions  of this world.     The child of the King stands strong,  as the heavenly Father strengthens him.

And so,  we go on rejoicing  as we travel.     And, we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  You have covered us  with the robe  of Jesus’ righteousness.     You have made us pure and holy  through faith  in Jesus.     Let our faith and hope always be  in what You have done  for us,  to make us Your dear children.”

Love,
Margaret
