THE PRESENT TRUTH
(We Are The Children Of God Right Now)
TO THE BIBLE 1 John 3:2
“Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
How inspiring this is! The Word says, “Now are we the children of God.” This is the reality. This scripture is already fulfilled in you if you’re born again; it’s not something that’s going to happen after the rapture of the Church or when we get to heaven; no! Now are we the sons of God; it’s a “present truth” for you to walk in.
Let’s review the entire verse: “Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” The underlined portion lets us know that though outwardly, we may not look that way, we know inside us that we have the same life and nature with Him; we have the same Spirit with Him. Glory to God!
What does this tell you? It shows that, as a child of God and as an associate of the God-kind, there’s really nothing more you need God to do in or for you because you have Christ in you. He already made you complete in Christ (Colossians 2:10); that means you’ve been perfected; nothing needs to be “added” to you, and nothing needs to be taken out. You’re complete in Him; you were born that way when you were born again.
It’s like in human childbirth: when a woman gives birth to a child, that child is hundred percent human; that is, he’s perfectly and completely human! In the same vein, when we were born again, we became sons and daughters of God; we’re complete and perfect in righteousness and holiness. You’re as righteous and as holy as He is because you share His divinity. He’s your life, your call, and your heritage. As He is, so are you in this world (1 John 4:17). You’re the effulgence of His glory and the express image of His person. Therefore, walk in righteousness and holiness according to your true nature in Christ.
Galatians 3:26 CEV
26 All of you are God’s children because of your faith in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 2:7 CEV
I will tell the promise
that the LORD made to me:
“You are my son because of today
I have become your father.
Thank you, Father, for the privilege of being your very own. I live in this reality today, manifesting your Word in every area of my life. I’m complete in Christ; there’s nothing lacking in my life, because Christ is my completeness, and as He is, so am I in this world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
