“No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.” 1 John 3:9
A wealthy man was to be honored at a neighboring city, so he asked his servant to prepare for the journey. The servant then requested “Master, I beg you, when we get there, introduce me as your son that I may also enjoy a royal treatment”. The man agreed. Upon their arrival, the rich man introduced the servant as his heir, and they were treated with great respect. However, while the table was being set for a lavish meal, the servant sneaked to the backyard and began eating discarded scraps with his hands. This confused the people, who informed the rich man. He then told them “He is not my son; he is just a servant.”Being a child of God is not a title, it is in having the character of Jesus. God’s arms are always open to receive us as His children, but it is our works that will show if we are His children or otherwise. You can pretend to the whole world for so long, you cannot deceive your creator. God cannot be mocked!
BIBLE READING: 1 John 3: 1-10
PRAYER: My Father, let my thoughts, words and actions show that I am truly your child in Jesus’ name. Amen
