In I John 3:1 it says, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”
What an awesome thought, that the Christian boy, girl, man, and woman are called the children of God. God, the creator of all the heavens and earth and every creature, both great and small wants to be our Father.
What “great love” for the all knowing and all seeing King of kings and Lord of lords to want me in His family, not as a distant relative, but as His own child.
Think about what this means. Examine the magnitude of the great love. God planned and put to death His one and only perfect and beloved Son as a ransom in exchange for an imperfect, rebellious, and often ungrateful sinful me and you.
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us…” and think on these things…
