Thought of the Day January 3, 2018 Our true identity

By 9:54 AM

That we are sons and daughters of God is something we take for granted at times. But it is a mystery revealed to us by God. “See what love the Father bestowed on us that we may be called the children of of God” (1 John 3:1). It is God’s choice to adopt us as his children in love. And because we are his children, “we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is” (1 John 3:2). What does God expect from us in this graced relationship? “Everyone who has this hope (of seeing God) based on him makes himself holy as he is holy” (1 John 3:3). As we reflect on this mystery, what desires stir in our hearts? How important is it for me to see God “face to face”? If growing in his likeness ( which is what holiness is), is that a priority in my life as a true son or daughter? Ask for that grace today.
