This image was posted by my baby girl Kimberly on Facebook. I guess she wanted to remind me and mamma that she’s special. Actually, I sort of agree with her here. I was the baby of three boys and her logic is impeccable!
But the truth be known sweet daughter, we’re all born sinners no matter how we want to approach the matter. Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
So my darling daughter, weather we’re endeared by the order of our birth, or glorified in any other way, we need to be humble sweety. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 3:26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Because of His Grace, the Lord God loves each and every one of His children like no one else can love us without respect of individuals. I’ve learned from that Godly love not to place one over the other in my love. Each and every one is precious to me. Gosh, even my own natural brothers Mikey, and Jimbo. My natural sisters, Roena, and Freda. My precocious sons and lovely daughters, Tim Jr., George (Brittania), Will (Billy), Ann (Anna Bell), and you, my beautiful Kimberly Liza. Your nieces and nephews, my grand babies, are also loved by me and your mama with the same love. And should the good Lord allow us to continue, I’ll show that same love to those great grand babies the same as well. Maybe, if the Lord allows, my great great grand babies!
Love and equal regard for my brothers and sisters in Christ is also a sure sign of our salvation because the Bible says; 1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Now how about that?
