Filii Dei sumus (1 Jn. 3:2)

We have been granted a great privilege to be called God’s children. We didn’t acquire that title because any extraordinary work we have done by ourselves, in fact, nothing we could do would be worthy enough to win it. It is by grace, kindness, and the greatest love of all that we were bought and redeemed by Christ's precious sacrifice for all humanity past and present sins. The Righteous suffered once to bring us near to God. Now, we are to partake in a royal family, a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, so we may declare the praises of him who called us out of darkness into his wonderful light (1 Peter 2:9). He is our light, he is the source of our happiness, great joy and real freedom.

The word of God says that God’s plan for His creation was to be one in His image and likeness, then sin came and interfere in that direct and perfect communion that Adam and Eve had with God Father. They lost their original nature as living spirits. Death and corrupted human nature began. That was not the plan for us, the plan is still to be like our Father is! We’ve been predestined to be in his image and likeness, we are His masterpiece.

In order to recover what we have been called to be it is important to evolve in His knowledge and experience the power of the living Gospel in our lives. The first and most important step is to recognize our Lord Jesus Christ as our unique and only Savior, then grow in the knowledge of his word and will for us through Bible study, and seek to make our self die so that He grows day after day in us.

We can still recover what was lost in the garden, a perfect and uninterrupted communion. Are you aware that His return to the date of love for his beloved one (the Church) is very close? What is the image that you will show when He shall appear? Are you prepared to see Him as He is? What He will find in you?
