Part 1 |
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 second installment of “If You’re God’s Child . . .”
If you’re God’s child you have greater potential than the sum of your parts because you’re blessed with Almighty God living inside of you.
If you’re God’s child you needn’t fear exposure – nothing could be revealed about you that hasn’t been covered by the blood of Jesus.
If you’re God’s child you don’t have to search for meaning and purpose – you’re part of the most important work in the universe, Redemption.
If you’re God’s child you don’t have to wonder about how your story will end because your future is sealed and secure in Christ.
If you’re God’s child, you needn’t run to the creation to satisfy your hungry heart – you’re now connected to the only One who can satisfy.
If you’re God’s child you live between the “already” and the “not yet” where sin still lives and grace is daily needed.
If you’re God’s child you live between two realities – enemies greater than your strength and grace that’s greater than these enemies.
If you’re God’s child you live between the war inside and temptation outside and sufficient provision has been made for both in Christ.
If you’re God’s child you are greeted every morning with new mercies, form fit for the needs of the day.
If you’re God’s child you’ve been called to obey and been given every resource you need to do what you’ve been called to do.
