CHILDREN OF GOD
"Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves His child as well. - 1 John 5:1 (NIV)
If you dare to believe that you are loved by God before you were born, you may realize that your life is very, very special. You become aware that you were sent here for a short time, for twenty, forty, eighty or so years, to discover and believe that you are a beloved child of God. The length of time doesn't matter.
You are sent into this world to believe in yourself as God's chosen one and then to help your brothers and sisters know that they are also beloved sons and daughters of God who belong together.
We are to be people of reconciliation that overcome the barriers between neighbors, locally, nationally and globally to achieve the unity that God has in mind.
We are in this world for a little while to claim that we and every other human being belongs to God and to assist our brothers and sisters to know that truth through faith in Jesus Christ.
Dear Father, Abba, I am called to be your child. Today I will look closely at the quality of faith you have given me and marvel. What a miracle. Thank you for choosing me. Amen
