I am loved, saved, blessed, sanctified, at peace with God and covered in His grace. I am a child of God, an heir/heiress with a mighty inheritance. May these words flow through your lips loud enough for the world to hear, I encourage you to take this moment to celebrate being a child of God.
In the book of John, Jesus said that He came so that we may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). Christ’s life, death and resurrection gave us access to that abundant life; it gave us access to God. During the days of the Old Testament our access to God was very limited, only the high priest was permitted to enter the Most Holy Place to meet directly with the Lord and this only took place once a year. Only the Hebrews were considered the sons and daughters of God.
Because of God’s grace all of that changed, because of His grace any person who calls on the name of God could be saved. Because of God’s grace every human being on Earth regardless of their sex, race or social class can be called a child of God. Thanks to God’s grace all who believe in Christ shall be counted as God’s righteous. It is because of God’s grace that we have full access to God, His mighty gifts and kingdom. God’s grace is abundant and amazing and the only one holding us back from it is ourselves.
Thank you Father God for your great love, your mercy and your grace. Thank you for giving each and every one of us full access to you and your heavenly kingdom. Today we celebrate your unconditional love for us and your amazing grace in Jesus name. Amen.
