Children of God

“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God” (1 John 3:1)

Now, isn't that something? This isn’t just a statement; it's a celebration! It’s John, overwhelmed with awe, urging us to open our eyes to the magnitude of God’s love. Imagine, the Creator of the universe, the King of all kings, loves us so much that He calls us not just His creations, not just His followers, but His children.

When you think about what it means to be a child of someone, it includes receiving love, care, protection, and inheritance. Being called a child of God means we are loved beyond measure, cared for beyond our understanding, protected under the shadow of His wings, and heirs to His kingdom.

John's statement is also an instruction—a wake-up call for us. It tells us to let this truth, this reality of being God’s children, permeate every aspect of our lives. How different would your life look if you truly lived every day knowing you were a beloved child of God? How would it change the way you face challenges, the way you interact with others, and the way you view yourself?

When we embrace this love, when we truly see it and let it fill our hearts, it transforms us. It changes the way we live. We start loving more freely, forgiving more readily, and living more joyfully. This love comforts us in our mourning, brings hope in our difficulties, and offers joy that is not fleeting but eternal. We become lights in this world, beacons of hope and love.

So, let’s live out the reality of God’s amazing love for us. Let this identity shape us, guide us, and propel us to live life to the fullest. For when we live as children of God, we live in the victory and joy that He intended for us, spreading this love to the world that desperately needs it.
