In Christ — Child of God!

Day 3221: Starting a new series today on ‘who we are in Christ.’

Scripture: Yet to all who did receive Him (Jesus), to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God! John 1:12

Thoughts/questions: Like so many others, on Thanksgiving we had our children and our children’s children over for our annual dinner. While some reach out to others, many find it to be a special time with only family. And many state that friends are great, but family is most important.

God thinks so too! He initiated families and put together His own family filled by His Christ following children. Like the honor we feel towards our adopted grandson, God honors us by giving us the ‘right’ to be His adopted children.

You’ve heard it before and it’s not new, BUT we must acknowledge the vast miracle of becoming part of God’s intimate family! It is a humbling honor and a right filled with responsibilities! So as a Christ follower and an adopted child of God, we are to be thankful, humble, and act like a precious child of the most high God!

Suggested Prayer: Father God, thank You for including me in Your family and loving me as one of Your own . . .
