As Christians we have been given the "power to become the sons of God." John 1:12. This means we are now part of the family of God. This does not come about by our biological parents, our heritage, or even our good works. The Bible says we have been "given" this power. Have you ever thought about where power comes from? Power can only come from authority. In spite of what someone may think, the word power in John 1:12 does not mean strength, in actuality it means authority.

Because Christ died, was buried, and rose again from the grave, we serve a living Savior. Because He lives, the Bible records for us the promise of His return.

After receiving Christ, we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us to guide and encourge us in the things of God. In Luke 19:13, we are taught to occupy till the return of our Savior. Let's determine to be found faithfully serving till we see Jesus.

Saved to Serve,
Pastor Darrell Roe
