Child of God

“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit
that we are God’s children”
(Romans 8:16)

 

Reflection:
If someone asked who you are – what would be your immediate response? Even to say that you are a Christian, whilst true, might not disclose the complete truth. Whether or not you would answer in this way or not the truth that should spring to our lips with joy is simply this,

I am a child of God.

As believers this is the glorious reality that we need to own and hold on to at all times.

  • “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name,
    he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12)
  • “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!” (1 John 3:1)

It is a reality that fills us with amazement and with assurance. The Lord God Almighty has put His Spirit and His Name into us in an irrevocable and eternal way. Nothing can now separate us. He will not disown us and there is no possibility of a divorce of any kind. He has recognised and embraced us now and forever.

“I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons,
neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord”
(Romans 8:38-39)

Having become a child of God through faith in Christ you are a child of God forever… and ever … and ever

Response:

I …………..(Name)  am a child of God the Father Almighty

Prayer:

Lord Jesus You said that the truth will set us free. Help me to receive and know and live in this glorious truth always. Amen.
