CHILDREN OF GOD



This is the official video for Third Day's song, "Children of God". It is awesome. The message is powerful. We are all children of God. Think about that for a minute - think about how much you love your children or how much your parents love you. God's love for us is more than that love. More than we can wrap our mind around. Isn't that amazing? He adopted us, through Jesus Christ, to be His sons and daughters. His very own. It's hard to think of ourselves as "His very own" sometimes, isn't it? Watch the video until the very end. Please. I promise you, you don't want to miss the message.

I will leave you with these verses. Think on them for a minute. Even if you have read them before, stop and really dwell on them. What is God saying to you? Does He have a fresh message for you today? I bet He does.

Ephesians 1: 3-8
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. 6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.t 7 He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. 8 He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.

Yes, many times it is difficult to grasp the awesomeness in our adoption. It is wonderful to be His child.

BTW, thank you for your too kind comments on my blog. You are so sweet!
