Discipleship 2.3 Assurance of Salvation: You are God’s Child Now

I don’t think any of us has a full picture of what it means to be a Christian. It means you are God’s own child, the one He loves so much. Do you know how much God loves you? The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shouldn’t die but have eternal life.” He loved you so much He died for you.

Now that you are His child by your faith in Jesus and His sacrifice, you can enjoy your relationship with Him. That means talking to Him, being filled with His power, and being free from your old way of living.

Your old way of living was like being a slave. The Bible calls it being a slave of sin. But now you are a citizen of Heaven! Imagine being freed from an oppressive country and getting a passport to a country with the greatest government, laws, and benefits. That’s what it’s like to live as a child of God in His Kingdom.

Is it difficult for you to leave the old familiar kingdom and embrace the new kingdom God has for you?
