We are children of God. It is a calling to which I feel unworthy. But that is just in my head. The truth is since I am called by God to be His child, I am worthy. When I say this, I am not trying to boast in myself. I am boasting in God’s mercy. God makes us worthy. This means that we have Salvation through Jesus’ sacrifice. Here is the thing, you do not have to choose God for Him to Love you. He loves us all we are all God’s creations and He loves us. The fact that God loves us makes us worthy of the gift of Salvation. The evil one will tell you that you are not worthy. While God calls us His children and children are worthy of a parent’s love. God’s love, like the love of a parent for a child, is unconditional. But as much as I love my children, God loves them more. How do I know this? When I look around the world and hear stories of the abuse that is placed on children around the world in ungodly countries; I know that not all parents love their children at least not like we do in Christian countries. As Christians we strive to love one another. I know that there are people in your life that are hard to love. We all have someone who is hard to love. But since God loves them and we love God; we are called to love one another. Every time I hear that a group of lives matter more than another group of people, I cry. I cry because I know God cries over hate. and hating someone because of their color, race, or creed is foolish. I feel pity for those that do not know God and live a life of hate. I know that there are people who want to kill me for my beliefs. I know there are people that don’t like me because I do not attend their church. I know there are people that think I am wrong. But I know that God is love not hate. I know that God loves the sinners because I know he loves me and I am a sinner. Jesus said he who is without sin should cast the first stone. in that story, there was no one left to throw a stone. That is because Jesus is about forgiveness and He says we are worthy to be forgiven and loved.
1 Peter 2:9-10: 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
