I will say to those who are not My people, “You are My people!” And they shall say, “You are my God!” (Hosea 2:23)
Without Christ we were aliens from the commonwealth of God. Nevertheless, because of the mercy and love of God we have been grafted into His Kingdom by the sacrifice of His Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We must never forget who we are in Christ. When life gets you down and you feel as if nothing is going your way, remember who you are. You are a child of the King. The Creator of the universe calls you His child and you call Him your Father. It just does not get any better than that. When this world gets you down and you hold you head high, God says, “That’s my child!” When the end result of your faithfulness proves to be fruitful, then you can say, “That’s my God!” This has not always been the case, but if you belong to Christ it is the case now. You are now somebody. God knows you by name and you likewise know His. His name is Jesus.
