Tearfund: Living Water Day 44

 

LIVING WATER: In God’s family

 

 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1

 

New life can be a messy business. Anyone who has had responsibility for a newborn knows just how tiring and difficult it can be. Sleepless nights, nappies everywhere, crying and not just from the baby.

 

Yet new parents will spend time, amidst the chaos, gazing in love at their baby.

 

We see in 1 John 3 that our Father in Heaven delights to call us His children. Through grace, he welcomes us into his family, and wipes clean the mess we make again and again. Let’s reflect today on his great love for us, even to death on a cross.

 

Prayer

Dear God, thank you that we have the privilege of calling you Father, and that, through Christ Jesus, we are your children. Thank you, that in bringing us into your family you also give us brothers and sisters around the world. We pray for many more to be brought into your family. Amen.
