Day 10

Today I acknowledge You as my Father


Scripture: 1 John 3:1 “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God”


Father: God’s role as the life-giver, the authority, and powerful protector.


1 John 3:1 beautifully expresses the profound love of God the Father for us, His children. In this teaching, we'll delve into the significance of God as our Father and the depth of His love that allows us to be called His children. The Father's Love: The passage begins with a declaration: "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us." It emphasizes the extraordinary depth of God's love, a love that is lavish, abundant, and without measure. God's love is not earned; it is freely given, showered upon us by our Heavenly Father. Our Identity as Children: The verse continues, "that we should be called children of God." This phrase highlights our identity as God's children. It signifies an intimate, familial relationship with God. As His children, we are recipients of His love, care, and inheritance. We are adopted into His family and enjoy the privileges and responsibilities that come with this identity. Understanding God as Father: The concept of God as our Father reveals His loving, nurturing, and protective nature. He provides, guides, and cherishes us. Recognizing God as our Father allows us to approach Him with childlike trust, knowing that we are secure in His love. Embracing Our Identity: As we embrace our identity as children of God, we're called to reflect His love and character. We are invited to imitate His love by loving others and living according to His teachings. We find purpose and significance in our relationship with Him as our Heavenly Father. 1 John 3:1 invites us to ponder the immense love of our Heavenly Father, who calls us His children. In understanding God as our Father, we find security, love, and purpose. We are recipients of His lavish love, and we are encouraged to live in a manner that reflects His character and love to the world. Let us pray: Heavenly Father, we thank You for the incredible love You have lavished upon us, allowing us to be called Your children. Help us to fully embrace our identity as Your sons and daughters and to live in a way that honors Your love and character. May we imitate Your love and reflect it to those around us. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
