Word of Encouragement-Child

October 20th, 2021

JOHN SHIRK – This week, our words of Encouragement direct our attention to who we are as a new creation in Christ.

Today’s Word of Encouragement is Child.

Galatians 4:6 and 7 says, “Because you are his sons, 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.”

When we put our trust in Jesus to forgive our sins and lead our lives, we become His child. God’s children receive the rights to inherit the kingdom of God. We become a member of God’s family. We regard God as our Heavenly Father in an endearing way. We trust Him as a loving Father who works all things together for our good. We cry out to Him in our moments of pain. We praise Him for His glory and grace. We acknowledge His authority over us, and seek to live a life that reflects His goodness.

Find encouragement in following Jesus as a child of God in the Year of Endurance.
