“Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today as we explore the Word of God, a truth is revealed.
“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! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”
– 1 John 3:1 (NIV)
Expanding on these words, we discover that some gifts may be too precious for words and too wonderful to fully appreciate. The greatest of these gifts is that we are God’s children!
We have been adopted into the Father’s family! Jesus claims us as his younger siblings! Even though the world may not acknowledge this, that condition doesn’t make it any less true. After all, the world didn’t recognize its Creator when he became flesh and lived among the people he had made.
God’s Word, however, still proclaims the truth; we are the children of God! If you belong to a good church, invite a friend.
If you are looking for answers, you can find them in God’s Word. Find a good church to attend and make a new resolution to discover the marvelous nature of God.
Please join me in this prayer today: Thank you, dear Heavenly Father, for the incredible blessing of being your child. I know that I haven’t begun to understand all the glorious things this gift means.
However, dear Father, I look forward to what I can learn now about what it means, and I joyously anticipate the day when I can see you face to face and fully know the meaning of this joy. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
