Christmas Weekday: Children of God

“See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God.” – 1 Jn 3:1 

We are all children of God. It sounds so simple, this mission of Jesus God-with-us. Yet, accepting this reality within our hearts is a lifetime challenge. A most transformative one.

I am convinced that an inception has already taken place in everyone’s life. The movie Inception suggests how a simple idea can transform a person’s life. If planted deep enough within a person’s consciousness, it will change everything. What if the simple idea is this: God loves you as you are, personally, irrevocably, without condition, without limit? When you and I believe this mystery and embrace it, it will has lasting impact on our lives.

After watching the video below, consider asking God for the grace to believe more fully that you are a beloved child of God. Receiving this gift may take some time. Yet, the journey of a thousand leagues begins with one step.

“Lord, help me to trust and live more fully that I am a child of God.”
