My name is Veronica Paschal. This is my birth name. It was given to me by my mother and father. The name Paschal belongs to my father. It is his invested tie to me which identifies me as his own outside of his (DNA). My father is not here on earth with me anymore, but while he was here he did his best to love care and provide for me and my siblings. What’s that? You want to know why? Oh…because we belonged to him. It was his responsibility to care for us. That’s what good father’s do, they protect, and provide for their families. Yes. That is a huge responsibility. It is the same responsibility given to your heavenly father once you take his name
. Did you know that God wants to give you his name so that he can provide and care for you in the same way that your earthly father does? However there is an action on your part if you would like to become a part of his family (God). Think about it…..we are all born into the families that we are a part of, not of our own choice, but even this was ordered by God. We are all the children of God, but to be in his family we have to choose to take upon his name. If you like to know how…… I can tell you that you must be born again of the spirit. (John 3: 1-36) Our flesh is of the flesh given birth to those things that are earthly, as the spirit is of the spirit given birth to those things that are spiritual, and so is the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God (Heaven) is of the spirit, and there should be no earthly part in it. ( earthly bodies/ flesh) 1 Corinthians 15-44-50)
Therefore we must be born again taking on the name of our heavenly father by being baptized into his name which applies the spiritual (DNA) for him to call us his own. I submit to you my friend (Acts 2-38) where by Simon Peter clearly explains to us what we must do to take upon the name of our heavenly father. First he says repent, meaning to say that you are sorry for what ever wrongs you have committed. Yes. We have all sinned, it does not matter of our good works, the Kingdom of God is spiritual and the scriptures say that we have all sinned and come ( fallen) short of the Glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
There is nothing good about us, and regardless of how good we try to live in character or deed, we must ask God for forgiveness of heart. The second deed is to be baptized. Now here is where we take upon his name. This act identifies us as his own, so the act of baptism must follow repentance to get us into the family. To be baptized means to be immersed in water. It is the burial of the earthly vessel(Body), once we are raised from the water we are spiritually a new vessel ( Body) born into the family of God our heavenly father.
It’s very simple. Once we are in the family we inherit all the blessings that comes with it. Ok. I heard that. Somebody said what blessings?! We are talking about spiritual things here. However, God has many natural blessings as well. You may be doing just great on your own, but what does it prosper or profit man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his soul (Mark 8-36). I extend an invitation to you my friend….if you would like to make the most important decision you will make in your life time and become a part of a huge beautiful family with everything to offer…..respond to this post. Let’s make it happen. God bless 🙂 I have to say this for my friends who are still doing them….LOL, do you, but don’t forget about him. he’s not expecting perfection. He (God) excepted me and I’m a long way from that…LOL!! 🙂 LOVE YOU 🙂
