1 John 3:1-3,7-9,11-14 NIV
[1] 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.

The position God has called us to is an extraordinary one – not just his servants or created beings but his children! Imagine having a father who is all powerful and full of grace and love – that is what we have! Nothing can change that – we can’t stop being his children although we can miss the blessing of it by living as though we are not related.

Father, what kind of love is this?
