OUR DAILY BENEFITS DEVOTIONAL | Pastor George Atubo
“And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:26.
I want you to see the last part. Jesus was saying the reason for His preaching to us, declaring His Father’s name to us, is so that the same love God has for Him may be in us.
The same love? Yes! The same measure. So Jesus is saying everything you did with me, do it with them. Can you believe that? Can you receive it?
God is not permitted to love you less than He did Jesus. The truth is He can’t. For Him to do so, He will have to first change from who He is and you know that is impossible because He does not change.
Why is it so difficult then to receive His love? Why aren’t you bold enough to function in His love? Listen! When you know someone loves you, there are things you do by taking advantage of that love.
It’s just like a married woman who have restrictions in her own house. Something is wrong there. Love is not at work there. One sign that love is working is access. Love gives you free access to everywhere.
Brethren! We have access to all the rooms of our Jesus. We have access to everything that has His name on it. Now is there anything that doesn’t have His name on it? So we’ve got access to everything on the face of this earth and also in heaven.
We have access to all the power of God, all the cattle upon a thousand hills, all the gold, silver, just name it. We have access to them all. That’s why anyone can bring you money, even a fish can bring you money. It did for Jesus and if you need it, God’s love is extended to you too.
Do you also know as a loved child of God, you shouldn’t be sick? Imagine Jesus being sick, can you think of it?
The same love that was in Jesus is in you now. Shout it, celebrate it and enjoy it even as you release same to everyone else in the name of Jesus.
