Galatians 3:26 For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

Are we children of God because we’re simply born into this world? No. Are we children of God because we perform acts of kindness? No. Are we children of God because we attend church? No.

We are children of God through faith. When we believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, we become children of God. Ephesians 1:5 says, God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ.

Seeing that we’re children of a great Father, there’s no reason to fear because a great Father protects His children. There’s no reason to worry because a great Father provides for His children. There’s no reason to think we’ll always be in a frustrating situation because a great Father delivers His children.

We could have been servants or friends to God, but God wanted a close relationship with us and so, He made us His sons and daughters.
