Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure (1 John 3:1-3).
We are children of God—NOW! At this moment. We are sons and daughters of the King of the Universe. This is not wishful thinking. This is not a fantasy. This is reality. We can know who we are and by knowing this, we can hold onto and believe the promises of God. This powerful truth helps us lay claim to God’s Word and overcome the lies of the curse, which tell us all the time that we are orphans, alone, destitute, hopeless. Our Father has made a way to take care of us forever.
