1 John 3:1 NIV 2011
See what great love the Father 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.
God loved His people so much that He sent Christ, His one and only Son, to be the final sin sacrifice. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that who ever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Those who believe in Christ’s atoning death are children of God. Those who don’t aren’t. John 1:12, “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” Devoted loyalty to the Lord leads to lives lived in light of His amazing grace and love.
God’s Word contains much information about people who made poor choices at one time or another. From Adam to Paul and many in between people loose sight of whom they are when they look to the world for affirmation. I type from experience but thankfully the Holy Spirit continued to nudge me back to the Lord. From that point on I’ve been devoted to the Lord. Not always easy, I’ve consistently seen He was right beside me. I live daily in the light of His grace and love.
How do believers remain focused on Jesus?
Living in His Light,
