Children Of God
"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!
The reason the world does not know us is
that it did not know Him.
Dear friends, now we are all children of God, and
what we will be has not yet been made known.
But we know that when He appears,
we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him
as He is.
Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies
himself, just as He is pure."
Children of God, how great does it sound? Have we ever really contemplated the full meaning of that phrase? We are the children of the greatest, the all powerful, the wisest, all seeing and all loving Person in the whole universe who created everything we see and beyond that. He created the whole universe and man, the pinnacle of His creation. If we have that great privilege, are we not supposed to enter His throne of grace in awe and reverential fear, befitting the glory and honor due to the King of kings and Lord of lords? But that's what we are. He loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to save us from spiritual death that was our inborn nature and apparent destiny. And all those who accepted His beloved Son as their Lord and savior were conferred the title- sons and daughters and children of God. We will be able to see our glorious nature upon the return of our Lord here on earth to fetch and bring us to His heavenly kingdom. We will be transformed into the glorious body our Lord has. In the meantime, while we await His triumphant return, let us purify ourselves from all filth and evil of this world and be faithful to Him by living to please God and give glory to His name.
