As A Child Of God, You Can . . .

As A Child Of God, You Can . . .

As a child of God, you can . . .

believe what God says about you, rather than the devil’s lies. Sometimes, it’s easy to ignore what God has to say about us, and fall for the enemy’s deception. Your Heavenly Father says that you are His beloved, cherished, valued, and treasured son or daughter. Choose to believe His words, and accept them as truth!

approach God with the freedom and confidence that comes from with knowing that He is your loving Heavenly Father. You are a child of God, and as His child, you have the privilege of boldly approaching His throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16). Use this privilege!

allow God’s love and grace to free you from condemnation and regret. You don’t need to constantly condemn yourself over mistakes you’ve made. Christ has paid the price for them in full!

trust in what Christ has done for your continued right standing before God, rather than your actions. You can never be good enough to earn righteousness. If what Christ did was enough to save you, then it’s enough to keep you in right standing with your Father in Heaven!

receive God’s blessings as the free gifts of grace they are intended. God’s blessing upon your life isn’t dependent on what you do, but rather on what Christ has done. His finished work has qualified you to receive all of the blessings God has for you!

You Can . . .

You Can . . .Many allow the ways of the world to determine how they live their lives. Romans 12:2 tells us, however, not to be conformed to the pattern of this world, but to be transformed by renewing our mind.

Just because everyone’s doing it doesn’t mean that you have to. Here’s a list of things that you CAN do, though they are contrary to the world’s way of doing things:

You can . . .

  • think for yourself, trusting the Spirit of Truth to guide you into all truth (John 16:13), rather than simply believing everything modern culture would try to tell you.
  • do things God’s way, rather than following the ways of man.
  • take charge of your own life, and follow the path that God has for you, instead of following the path that the majority of those around you are following, simply because it’s what everyone else is doing.
  • read God’s Word, and believe His truth instead of falling for the lies of the world.
  • find your fulfillment in God’s love for you, rather than this world’s empty promises.

Dare to stand out, living your life according to what God says. Instead of conforming yourself to the pattern of the world, allow your mind to be renewed to His way of doing things!
