The Genuine Is As a Child

Another devotional gem from Todd Parsons:

What makes us genuine? When we think of pure gold, we think that what is on the outside is on the inside. Yet we all too often find that not to be so...even with us.…  We can be genuine through and through when we bring our will to the Cross of Calvary daily.

My Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven...Matt.6:9-10.

When His will is at my core, my motivation, my heart...what is the outside me will also be on the inside of me, because what is on the inside will become the outside by means of genuineness...  His Kingdom will be on earth only when His Kingdom is in me and able to govern me.  For it is His will in me and no longer mine governing.  For I have gone to the Cross this day to hear His voice speak to me that without Him i can do nothing.… Therefore, I choose, with Him.

Not I, You govern me LORD.…

Of So Great Love, we are, tjp
