Love of God for His Children

Today’s Daily Devotion

By Dr. George J. Ceremuga

1 John 3:1-3 focuses on God’s love and how his love results in believers becoming children of God. See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. Yet so we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

Everyone who has this hope based on him makes himself pure, as he is pure.
1 John 3:3

Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we shall has not yet been revealed. We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. Everyone who has this hope based on him makes himself pure, as he is pure (VV.1-3).

Becoming a child of God is seen as a great sign of love from God the Father. John specifically mentions that believers are not only “called children of God,” believers truly are God’s children. This theme closely connects with the words of John 1:12: “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” God’s children are those who both receive Jesus as Lord and believe in His name as the risen Messiah. 

God Loves the Children!
