EXERCISE YOUR DIVINE NATURE

 
*Audio Version link*(with YBP Audio Bible): http://bit.ly/29kwAat

1 John 2:10 [NET]
10 The one who loves his fellow Christian resides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 


Daniel's dad was a celebrated wrestling champion and an very fast runner. Daniel had inherited his father's athletic genes, but he could not do any of the things His father did because his muscles were not built up. When Daniel got to college, he joined a group that made him exercise routinely. Daniel then realized he too could run very fast and play tennis. In no time, he started to excel in wrestling. He could do all this because His muscles were now developed.

If you read the book of 1st John, you will see that the domineering theme is love. 1 John reveals that when we walk in love, we will walk above a guilty conscience (1 John 3:18-20). It also reveals that when we walk in love, we walk in the light and receive cleansing from unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). We can also see from today's Bible text that when we walk in love, there would be no cause for stumbling in us.

In order to walk in the reality of God's divine life and grace that you have received, you need to exercise yourself in His nature and grow therein. As you grow, you will be able to know God more and grow in His grace. A child doesn’t have the capacity to properly know his father until grows up from being a child.

Like Daniel in the story above, as you exercise and develop your spiritual muscles, you will realize that because you have grown through exercising the most dominant attribute of God's nature you now inherit, you will also grow in the many other attributes of God's divine nature. Your life will be full of grace and power.

Go into today, deciding to further exercise your divine nature by walking in love.
