See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. Yet so we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1 John 3:1 NABRE
This First Letter of John is substantial, it is a teaching about Christian faith and love. It describes the qualities of those who truly belong to God and have fellowship with Father and Son. In the section with the quoted verse we see John speaking about the Christian as children of God. John is telling us to remain in Him, be connected to Jesus, follow the commandments and await Jesus return, not worried but with confidence. John turns to say we are children of God and we will become fully like Jesus. God the Father has such love for us we have the privilege of being called children of God and “so we are.” Christians become fully children in a new way via the saving work of Christ. The world does not recognize us as God’s children because they never recognized Jesus as God’s Son. Jesus was persecuted and we can expect to be persecuted. In Jesus second coming what we will become is not revealed but seeing Him fully we will become like Him. Though we are human now, we will become divine. We won’t be fully God, we share in God’s divine life and power and become like God in our eternal life.
We can say it this way; God became human so we as human can become God. It is God’s plan that we join Him and become part of his divine life. Created in the image of God naturally in eternity we become like God. We are so special, recognized being called children of God. We should live as we are God’s offspring and make daddy proud!
Do you accept that you are truly a child of God? Can you see divinity within you now and in your future?We can say it this way; God became human so we as human can become God. It is God’s plan that we join Him and become part of his divine life. Click To Tweet
