Children of the King

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. -1 John 3:1

Our culture tells us that there is no one so special they cannot be replaced. But God created each of us uniquely, and we are so loved the King of kings has chosen to adopt us and call us His own children. That makes us royalty! 

Royalty in our world enjoys incredible wealth, mingles with “jet setters” and has worldwide fame. However, they also face their inability to change real world problems and have to deal with scandal, gossip, and lack of privacy. They cannot call their lives their own.  

Neither can we, though. Scripture says that we were bought with a price (1 Cor. 7:23) and that we now belong to Father God. We are part of the most worthy royal line: The Father has made us His noble and virtuous children (Ps. 45:13). We follow the law of another kingdom (James 2:8), and we are now fulfilling a new call on our lives (1 Pet. 2:9). 

Let us conduct ourselves today as a child of the King. 

1 John
