I John 3:1


I John 3:1 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!


May I be full of your lavishing love today, O Father. May I ponder the greatness of this truth: I am your dear child! You call me your child even though I was born in sin, born outside of your family. You call me your own even when, by my sinful rebellious acts, I give you every right to disown me. How great is your love! As your child I am the benefactor of your blessings – forgiveness, new life in Christ, salvation! I, too, am an heir, not to earthly riches, but to eternal life, eternal riches in heaven! Yes, today and every day may I splash around in the love you lavish upon me, your dear child. Amen.
