See what great 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 (NIV)
There is nothing better than knowing you are welcomed somewhere, knowing that you belong. We all long to know that we are chosen, that someone delights in knowing us, that someone wants to love us. While we hope that our family of origin, the community we live in, and our local church would be that kind of place and people for us, that isn’t always the case. We face disappointment, rejection, fractured relationships. People let us down. Places that should be safe are not.
What two beautiful words! But God loves us, chose, us, and calls us His children.
Maybe that’s what you need to sit with today. Hear God say to you:
Daughter. Daughter. You are my child and I love you lavishly.Leave a Comment
