Dailies ~in His Word
October 2019
Who are you? Who am I? Well in Christ we are children of God.  For He calls us His children, so we must be.
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. Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is. And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.
1 John 3:1-3
As His children we need to be more like Him, more pure, more just, and more loving. We cannot do any of this if we do not practice being more loving and less sinful in our daily walks. More love, less sin, more righteousness, less behaving like the people in the world that do not know Him. We have to remember that as Christ believing followers of God we are to stand up to a higher level of behavior and behave as Christ would in all situations.
Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous.  But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God. John 3:7-10
Let’s do the best we can to not sin, but love one another and love God Himself today! Then tomorrow let’s do it again!

Heavenly Father, thank you for loving us enough to call us Your Children. Help us to grow more like You, our Abba Father, each day by waking in love. In Jesus’ name, amen.
