DEVOTION: “See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.” – 1 John 3:1
John starts this chapter out with a bang. Talking immediately about the love that the Father has for us.
Sometimes it’s hard to comprehend, to even take in. This God who sometimes is a roaring lion and other times as gentle as a lamb…..actually loves us. Actually wants to commune with us and be a part of our lives.
He calls us His children. Let me say that again, he calls us his children. Why? Why does he do this? Why would he even care about us? It’s amazing. Psalm 8:4 says this: What is a man that you are even mindful of us.
It blows my mind. Yet, here we are. Interacting with Him and talking with Him.
I am a child if God. Let me realize that and live that out. Let my heart be grateful. Let my soul be thankful. Let my mind be open to the idea of being more than just a man wandering this world aimlessly. This God who loves me so very much, gives me direction. Gives me purpose. Amen.
