I know who I am in Jesus Christ and so I am inspired to walk boldly in my identity. I am a child of God – John 1:12 and I belong to the family of God -Ephesians 2:19. My status is confirmed in 1 John 5:1 which states that everyone who believes that Jesus is Christ is born of God.
Dear believer in Christ, this is our hope for today, our security for the future, and our motivation to have a relationship with our Father. Knowing who you are, gives you the joy and confidence to tell others about Jesus Christ.
Our new birth is explained in John chapter 3. It is a spiritual birth. It is not by the will of man, flesh, or blood- John 1:13. It is an elevation of the biological birth of our earthly parents.
Your new birth means, you were brought forth by the word of truth – James 1:18, the word which lives and abides forever -1 Peter 1:23.
We are all created by God in Colossians 1: 16. And scripture confirms God loves everyone -John 3:16 and does not wish for anyone to perish- 2 Peter 3:9. Yet not everyone created is a child of God. It is only those who have experienced the second birth John 3:5-6. A child of God has the privilege to call God “Father “, signifying the close relationship one can have with God – Galatians 4:6. It makes you a joint heir with Jesus Christ.
If your children can approach you in confidence, you should also approach God in confidence-Hebrews 10:19. Speak to Him in prayer and continue to trust in Him as He directs your path-Proverbs 3:5-6
In Christ Jesus, you are not an orphan, an alien, or a stranger. In fact, you are not a sinner. Your status has changed. You are a son or daughter of God, a member of His household, and you are loved by Him.
So, live, walk and talk like a true child of God.
