Inspire Me Wednesday (2)

Just like last week, I'm going to share with you a little about InterVarsity tonight. I'm not going to lie (it's not my thing), tonight wasn't my favorite ever. Don't get me wrong, it was good (it always is) and a couple people committed their lives to God (HOW COOL IS THAT?!) but I had a hard time keeping focus.

But I did hear a few things that I thought, "I think my bloggy friends would like that." So here goes...

"Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba,Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir." Galatians 4:1-7 (The Message)

We are God's Heirs.

This means: the things God owns will be given also to us when we accept Him into our hearts and our lives. So...
His love? Ours.
His mercy? Ours.
His grace? Ours.
His forgiveness? Ours.
It's all ours!

We were given "homework" this week. It was to pray for 3 minutes daily. 3 minutes? Not too bad. I think I can handle that. He told us that when we take our 3 minutes aside, we are to say to God, "I know that You are the Perfect Father. Show me why."

I'm going to try very hard to take 3 minutes aside each day and pray to my Heavenly Daddy. If this is something you do already or have decided to do, please let me know so I can pray for you :)
