Read: 1st John 3:7-10 Open Heaven 28 March 2019
7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

Message:- Open Heaven 28 March 2019 Thursday Daily
We live in times, when most people are ruled by their sense.
Therefore, for us to effectively reach the world with the gospel of Jesus
Christ, the message of the gospel must be manifested for them to see.
In other words, we must live out the message as delivered to us by the Lord and His early apostles. The most effective way to win this generation is to demonstrate the power of God practically for them to see, hear and touch. No wonder Apostle John wrote in 1st John 1:1&3:
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, when we have seen with our eyes, when we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;… That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.”
The God of heaven must confirm our claims that we belong to Him and that we are His ambassadors on earth, both in holiness and prosperity, just as He testified to the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ by speaking from heaven and demonstrating His power through Him (Matthew 3:17). When the Father did for Jesus, He can also do for us, because as the Father has loved Him, so does He love us (John 15:9).

When a person becomes born again, he or she takes on divine nature of God that does not accommodate sin. In other words, a born again person is now triumphant over sin, and sin has no compelling power over him or her. 1 John 3:9 says:
“Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.”
If this word is true, how come we hear about some Christians
being caught in terrible sins that even some unbelievers naturally abhor? The
reason is simple: even though God has transformed your spirit to have the
capacity to sin no more, you still have the right of freewill which God gave to
man in the beginning. Just like Adam misused his freewill, a child of God can
misuse his freewill and walk voluntarily into sin. However, the truth remains
that when a man is born again, he becomes a new creature; old things are passed
away and the fellow begins to live an acceptable and godly life that is
practically impossible for those who have not tasted God’s gift of salvation.
From that time onward, the seed of God in that fellow begins to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit that would not allow the works of the flesh to manifest in such a life (Galatians 5:19-25). When we begin to live according to the pattern that Jesus placed before us, the world will realise that we have something that they do not have, and they will come seeking to learn from us about the Jesus that has made a difference in our lives.
