If You’re God’s Child, Part 1

May 3, 2012

Last year, I compiled a series of 36 blogposts based on tweets from Scotty Smith on “Signs You’re Growing in Grace.” I, and I know countless others, were greatly encouraged in the gospel by those daily tweets.  Another person who brings the gospel to bear regularly on twitter is Paul Tripp.  He has recently begun a series of tweets called “If You’re God’s Child . . . ” and I have compiled them for you as well.  Depending on how many tweets he does, I may make this into another blogpost category/series. But for now, here’s the initial installment of “If You’re God’s Child . . .”

If you’re God’s child, God has written you into his story, your future is secure and so is his grace along the way.

If you’re God’s child, you are never alone because Emmanuel has moved in and he’s not leaving.

If you’re God’s child, you don’t have to search for identity, your identity is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you’re God’s child, you have strength greater than your own because the Lord Almighty lives inside you by his Spirit.

If you’re God’s child you have greater wisdom than your intellect or experience since you’re now in relationship with the One who is Wisdom.

If you’re God’s child you don’t have to have control because your Savior rules over all things for your sake and his glory.

If you’re God’s child the promise of the future grace of eternity guarantees you all the grace you need along the way.

If you’re God’s child you don’t fight sin on your own since you been blessed with the convicting, protecting, rescuing grace of the Spirit.

If you’re God’s child you’re free to admit you don’t measure up since your acceptance doesn’t rest on your obedience but on Christ’s.

If you’re God’s child, you’ve been freed from seeking horizontally what you have already been given in Christ.
