THEME: CHILDREN OF GOD
1 John 3:1-3
“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.”
-God is love and through His everlasting love gave us the privilege to become His children. God is pure and through faith in Him we are made holy in the hope of glory. As God’s children we walk in victory knowing that we are more than conquerors for we are in Christ Jesus. Despite the challenges that we might be faced with, we always win because our identity is in Christ. Further, we have the hope of partaking in Christ’s glorious resurrection; when we shall be transformed to be like Him and we will see Him as He is.
-God loved us and gave us His only begotten Son so that we may receive eternal life through faith in Him. He has given us the gift of salvation, and adopted us as His children and heirs of His kingdom. Since the Holy Spirit lives in us, we should live by the spirit which yields life for if we live by the flesh we will die. God calls us to follow His word as His children and shun from evil. Through this we demonstrate love for Him and He comes to make a home with us. God disciplines the ones He loves and if we are His legitimate children; He chastens us and guides us in all things. The Holy Spirit leads us in a war within and brings us to conscience that we are the righteousness of God. Therefore any form of sin in our lives is exposed, then we hate it and love God. Through prayer and meditating on His word of God, we receive correction, direction and effectively cast down any imagination that is not of God. We also know that we are children of God if His Spirit dwells in us and anyone who does not have the Spirit of God does not belong to Him. As His children, we did not receive the spirit of fear but that of sons by which we cry Abba Father. Let us therefore not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit, for those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God, and the Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. As His children we live in liberty and have an eternal inheritance which He has promised us. We are joint heirs with Christ and if we suffer with Him; we shall be glorified with Him.
Thank You Father for loving us and adopting us as Your children through Your Son Jesus Christ. Give us the same kind of love so that we may love You and our neighbours as ourselves. We praise You Father for are worthy of all our praises and worship. Sanctify us by Your precious blood and fill us with Your Spirit of counsel, might, knowledge, understanding, wisdom and the fear of the Lord. Help us to operate effectively in everything we do and protect us from all evil. Thank You Jesus for the victory that You won for us on the cross, fight for us our battles we humbly implore You. We are more than conquerors for we are in You Christ Jesus, and neither death nor life, angels, principalities nor powers, things present nor things to come, height nor depth, nor any other created thing can separate us Your love Jesus. Amen
