1 Jon 3:1 (NKJV) – Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
Because we know who God is, we have hope that we are His children because Jesus died to reconcile us back to the Father, making us adopted children now having access to the same inheritance as He had. Because we have this hope we have to keep ourselves pure as Christ is pure because he was manifested on earth to take away our sins; there is no sin in Christ Jesus. When you have the knowledge of the Father’s love for us we will do all we have not to abide in sin for the Bible says whosoever sins hath not seen him, neither known him. Children are pure and innocent and as God’s children we must always do righteously.
Father please help me to live a pure and holy life in Jesus name.
