Today's verses are John 6:37,38: "All the the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.  For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me." My child, my greatest, deepest desire is that you come to faith in me.  My most fervent passion is that you believe in me.  I want you to trust me with your entire life, in every possible way.

Come to me today.  Believe that I am God's Son, who came to earth to die on the cross for the forgiveness of your sins.  Through me, you know have an eternal relationship with my Father in heaven.  Your sins are forgiven forever, as far as the east is from the west.  Should you ask my Father today about some past sin you committed, about which you may still feel embarrassed, he would say to you, "I purposefully and intentionally remember forgetting that!"  My Father in heaven is an eternal amnesiac.  He remembers your sins no more!

If you have come to me in faith and believe that I died for your sins and rose from the dead, we are in an eternal relationship.  It is sealed.  Nothing can eve separate us and our love for one another.  Neither life, nor death, nor any demonic horde, nothing in heaven or on earth, nothing, absolutely nothing, can ever separate us!  I will never cast you out.  I will never neglect or leave you as an orphan.  You are eternally mine.  I am eternally yours.  We are family!

Don't you see?  I left the majesty of heaven and entered the muck of this world because that was my Father's will for me.  He ask me to take on human flesh and live the perfect life you are unable to live.  I humbled myself in obedience to him, even obedience to the point of death on the cross.  Yet because I fervently desired, above all else, to obey my Father's will, he lifted me up and exalted my name above all other names.  Because of my humble obedience to his will, he elevated me and my name above all others.  Now every knee will bow and tongue confess that I am Lord over the universe.

If you have accepted me, make your life's passion the doing of my Father's will.  Seek above all else his will.  Follow me, as I followed my Father's will.  When you make the doing of his will the master passion of your life, the opinions of others will not greatly matter.  The priorities of this world become less and less.  You will be conformed to my image, from the inside out.  Your heart will be developed for others, not yourself.  Your life will be focused outward, not inward.  And you will feel joy inexpressible.

I came to to the will of my Father.  Now live similarly today to do the will of your Father in heaven.

You can trust me today.
