Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Sons and Daughters Only"
"Joash did what was right in the sight of the Lord all the days of Jehoiada the priest."
Breakfast this morning shows us that there's no substitute for direct and personal relationship with God. You're either a son or a daughter!
Joash was not a son of God - he was a "son" of Jehoiada the Priest; Who was a "son" of God. As long as Jehoiada lived, Joash followed Jehoiada; because he had a direct relationship with Jehoiada.
Fortunate for Joash, Jehoiada had a direct relationship with God as a son of God.
During all those years with Jehoiada, Joash never developed a personal relationship with God; He depended upon Jehoiada for that. Joash had an indirect relationship with God.
When Jehoiada died, Joash was left without any relationship with God Because he was not a son of God.
Without Jehoiada, Joash listened to the elders who led him away from God and into idolatry and apostasy.
Listen up Warrior!
You're a son of God - You're a daughter of God - because of your Commander Jesus. His Warriors are Sons and Daughters ONLY! (John 1:12)
Our Mission is to show others how they too can become sons and daughters of God - and Warriors of the Kingdom of God! Ooooh Rah!
Our Commander's Love is working in us continually, growing a desire to do His will, and also empowering us to execute His will in our life (Phil.2:12-13).
Our Confidence is in our Oneness with God as His son and His daughter (John 17:20-21).
You're a daughter of God, Warrior Queen!
You're a son of God, Warrior King!
