God’s Children

Is everyone a child of God? Are we really all God’s children? The Apostle John seems to be saying that the answer is no. He wrote:

See what great loveĀ the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!Ā And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. – 1 John 3:1 (NIV)

There is a difference between God’s children and the world. God loves the world, but He calls those who know Him His children. Those who have trusted Jesus for forgiveness have been adopted into the family of God and have been made children of God. This is only made possible by the love of God that we have had lavished upon us. God is not stingy with His love. He does not withhold it from anyone who wants to receive it. What are you waiting for? Receive the love of the Father and be an orphan no longer. Let Him adopt you into His family by grace through faith in Jesus.
