Child not slave

Slavery is a big issue today but to many of us it is something that we’re not aware of. Imagine having no freedom, being controlled by something or someone else with no choice.
Galatians 4:4-7 (https://bit.ly/36zDZjz) explains how we use to be a slave to the law and now through Christ we have become children of God.

God views you as His child, free to love, worship and serve Him. This is dramatically opposite to being a slave. Thank God that you are seen as His child and ask Him to help you live as His son or daughter.


Citizens of heaven

I’m approaching my fourth year living outside of my home country and whenever I need to show my ID-documents and have to use my passport. No matter where I am, I am always connected to my nationality and citizenship.

Philippians 3:17-21 (https://bit.ly/3d9QrZM) describes us as citizens of heaven. When we follow Christ, He gives us a “new ID document/passport” to carry, we become citizens of heaven! God views you as part of His Kingdom. What does it mean for you to be part of God’s Kingdom? Ask God to show you what it means to live with this new citizenship.


Jars of Clay

In 2 Corinthians 4:7 (https://bit.ly/2pSscaX) we are viewed as Jars of Clay. A bit of a weird picture without further thought. However, this view should excite us. Our God views us as fragile clay jars full of light and treasure, symbolising the glory of God. Our weakness shows us that we are not doing this in our own strength but in God’s strength.

Spend some time today reflecting on the fact that God views us as a fragile/weak clay jar which contains His light and glory. You and I contain the glory of God. Wow!



A balloon without air in it iswell, just a piece of boring rubber really.
A car tyre without air in it iswell, a flat tyre that ain’t going anywhere quick.
And a world without you in it would bewell, flat and not round how it’s supposed to be.

Jesus said it like thisdough without yeast isn’t going to rise, and if dough is the world I created, you’re my yeast. Don’t for a minute think no one would miss you. You matter. You are seen. You are not alone. You are irreplaceable. Like yeast.

Just ask the woman making bread in Luke 13:20-21 (https://bit.ly/2VNWc9q).
