I Am God’s Child

I Am Your Child

 

I am Your child.  Oh what a joy.

It means so much to me.

It is hard to comprehend

And also to believe.

A love so deep that You would give

Your Son upon the tree.

 

I am Your child by Your Son’s death

Upon that Calvary tree.

It is Your gift that sets me free

To be made one with Thee.

I ask You, God, to burn the chaff

That makes me unlike Thee

Until the world can look at me

And see Your love flow free.

1 John 3:1

Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and [such] we are. For this cause the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

1 John 3:2

Beloved, now are we children of God, and it is not yet made manifest what we shall be. We know that, if he shall be manifested, we shall be like him; for we shall see him even as he is.

 

What an awesome fact.  When I accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, I became a child of God.  With that come all the privileges and responsibilities.  As His child, I am a representative of Him here on this earth.  What I think, do and say all reflects to those around me the very essence and nature of God.  Do my actions reflect His love?  Do my word reflects His love, peace and joy?  I must keep yielding to the work of His hands and allow Him to shape my into the person who will best manifest His nature.  Every morning I give myself anew to Him.  Every night I reflect on my thoughts, words and actions of the day, asking forgiveness for things outside of His nature and asking for His power for the next day.

 

Prayer

 

Father God, thank You for the gift that cost You so very much.  Help me to be pleasing to You by manifesting Your character to those around me.
