I Am A Loved Child Of God

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 3:1 (NIV)

I get the fact that it is really hard to get our mind around some concepts like infinity, predestination and omnipresence. There are things about God that will take all eternity for us to understand. What I don’t understand is why is it so hard to believe that we are God’s loving child? John emphatically tells us that God’s love for us is proven in the fact that God calls us His children. John even punctuates the fact with the phrase, “And that is what we are!” Paul however knew how hard it would be and challenged us. He wrote, “And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.” Can you imagine what our life would be like if we really knew and experienced His love? How different would we approach the challenges that come our way? The truth is most of us wrestle with the concept of being loved as God’s child. We have no clue as to what it means or how it should affect our life. Today this can change. Ask God to help you really understand the depths of the love He has lavished on you. It will change your life.

Father, I pray that my life would be a living testimony of the fact that You have lavished Your love on me by making me Your child. Might everything I think, say and do today be shaped by this glorious fact. In Jesus’ name.
