My successful New Year's Resolution: daily readings from Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado.
Today: God's Child
"The Father has loved us so much that we are called children of God. And we really are His children." 1 John 3:1
Let me tell you who you are. In fact, let me proclaim who you are.
You are an heir of God and a co-heir with Christ. (Romans 8:17)
You are eternal, like an angel (Luke 20:36)
You have a crown that will last forever (I Cor. 9:25)
You are a holy priest (I Peter 2:5), a treasured possession (Exod. 19:5)
But more than any of the above -- more significant than any title or position -- is the simple fact that you are God's child....
We really ARE His children
As a result, if something is important to you, it's important to God.
