1 JOHN 3:1
See what great love the Father has 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.
By God's grace we are saved and have become his children. Because of this, we can call God our father. He is a father who pours his love out on all his children. What joy we have that we can be children of God. To the rest of the world, our hope and joy makes no sense, because they do not know God as father. They do not understand why we always sing his praise and go about telling, teaching, preaching and sharing His good news to the people around us. Jesus once told his disciples, 'anyone who has seen me has seen the father.' In the same way, the world will come to know Christ in us and through us, as we live faithfully as his children and they see him alive in us.
Dear God, thank you for your love which your pour on us over and over again. Thanks for calling me to become your child. It is a privilege and honour that you might use me to make yourself known in the world. Please help me to trust you and to faithfully let my life show you and your love to others. Amen
