"So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ." Galatians 3:26-27
When you woke up this morning, you probably thought about a list of things you need to accomplish before the day is over. You may have even thought about a tough day at the office or at school that awaits you. You may have even wondered what your day would bring...battles that you may possibly face. If you are a Christ follower, I want to remind you of something very important: YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD! Galatians 3:26 says, "So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith." Because of Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross and His resurrection from the grave, God has restored you into a right relationship with Himself. YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD! Galatians 4:6-7 says, "Because you are his children, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, 'Abba, Father.' So you are no longer a slave, but God's child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir." Paul faced all the battles, if not more, that you and I face everyday. But Paul understood who he was in Christ. He understood that he was A CHILD OF GOD! Paul said in Romans 8:37, "In all things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us." Today, I want you to attack that "to-do" list. Today, I want you to attack that tough day at the office or at school. Today, I want you to face your battles head on! How??? With the power of Christ, who lives in you! Why??? Because YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD!!!
