“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (I John 1:3 NIV)
Yesterday we focused on God as my Father, and it follows then, I am His child. The Bible teaches that I was born into God’s family; “Yet to all who received him (Jesus), he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.” (John 1:12-13). And the Bible describes wonderfully that we “have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.” (1 Peter 1:23 NIV)
Everyone can become a child of God. One becomes a child by inviting Jesus into one’s life, and becoming born anew through the seed that God’s living and enduring Word, the Bible, is.
Thank you God for allowing me to be Your child and to bask in all the privileges of being Yours. Thank You for offering the same wonderful possibility to all - to belong to Your family.
