Children Of God

They are corrupt and not his children;
to their shame they are a warped and crooked generation.
- Deuteronomy 32:5 -

Christian believers are the children of God.

If you have received the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart, you are a child of God.

If you have believed on Jesus Christ's name, that is, simply from your heart trust yourself with the crucified, but now exalted, Redeemer, you are a member of the family of the Most High.

We have the privilege to become a child of God.

Our Lord Jesus puts it in another shape.

"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me."

Christ appears as a shepherd to His own sheep, not to others.

As soon as He appears, His own sheep perceive Him.

They trust Him. They are prepared to follow Him.

He knows them, and they know Him.

There is a mutual knowledge.

There is a constant connection between them.

Thus the one mark, the sure mark, the infallible mark of regeneration and adoption is a hearty faith in the appointed Redeemer.

Are you in doubt, are you uncertain whether you bear the secret mark of God's children?

Then let not an hour pass till you have said, "Search me, O God, and know my heart."

Let us not trifle about our soul, our never-dying soul and its eternal destinies. 
Le us be in earnest, and make sure work for eternity.
