“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” – 1 John 3:1-3
Beloved, as the world seems unsteady, we focus on that which is always steady: God and His Beloved Son, Jesus.
Continuing with 1 John 3, we read how we are children of God due to His love which He bestows on us.
I love to reflect on these verses.
• Note that we ARE children of God; that is our great heritage.
• Note that without God’s love we are not His children.
• Note that nothing is dependent on us.
• Note that He bestows this love.
What a wonderful gift!
Have a blessed week!
Yours in Christ,
Soli Deo Gloria!
