Lenten Devotional: Wednesday, March 11, 2015

childrenOfGod1 John 3:1 “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we
should be called children of God.”

Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not
forbid them; for to such as these belongs the kingdom of heaven.’”

These verses clearly tell me that it was because of God’s great love for us that he bestowed
it upon us to be called children of God. And it was through the gift of his son
Jesus that he showed us how much he loved us. Because he gave his only begotten son
as a sacrifice for my sins, to die on the cross of Calvary so that I could receive his gift
of eternal life and be an heir or a child of God. God as Jesus said, “For of such is the
kingdom of heaven made up – children of God.”

Prayer: Thank you Father for bestowing your great love upon us, for sending us your
son to redeem us from our sins and for giving us the gift of eternal life thus making us
heirs and children of God. Amen.
