Our new identity in Christ: Sonship (self-image, purpose)
Now, if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory. [Romans 8:17 ]
Jesus was able to defeat temptation, because He knew who His Father really was. He knew his Father’s words and promises. Don’t let the enemy persuade you that you are not good enough to be a child of God. Feelings of guilt or shame will distance you from the Father. Listen to the Father: You are chosen. You are forgiven. You are redeemed. You are loved.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank-you for your free gift of grace, unfailing love and unending acceptance. Teach me to listen to your voice of truth amidst all the deception in this world. In Jesus’ precious name I pray,
