Living as God’s Child

Living as God’s Child

When they heard this, all in the synagogue were filled with rage. Luke 4:28

As a beloved child of God, you are unlike any other person. You are a unique daughter of God, a unique son of God. By living your life as a child of God you have a unique statement to make and I encourage you to make it. If you let your life go by without having said anything, you allow the world to define you as ordinary. But the world doesn’t need any more ordinary people. The world needs witnesses, prophets, teachers, lovers. The human family needs people who claim God within them, and speak out by living lives of hope and compassion.

If you claim this identity, and live it, you must be prepared, because the world may laugh at you. But if you know who you are as a son or daughter of God, linked into a community of believers, you will grow and give hope to brothers and sisters everywhere.

Dearest God, Eternal Flame of Love, burn within me. Fill me with courage to let my life speak your word in the world.
