Galatians 3:26

 
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:26

There is an idea that we are all children of God. This idea says that since God created us, that automatically makes us children of God. The Bible would tell us differently. John 1:12 tells us, "but as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name." The only way in which we can become children of God is by our faith in Jesus Christ. If we then have received Christ and can identify with Him, that makes us children. If we become children, then we also become heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).

I love the idea that God would call me His son. Imagine that, we have been adopted into His family and He doesn't look at us as evil step-children trying to get an inheritance, but instead looks at us as He would see Christ. It blows my mind that He doesn't say, "Here is My adopted son" but rather, "Here is My son, in whom I'm well pleased." If today you don't have that relationship with our heavenly Father or you feel that you messed it up big time with Him, my prayer is that you would reach out and confess your sins as He is faithful and just to forgive your sins and will cleanse you from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

I am a child of God.
