Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

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 fifth installment of “If You’re God’s Child . . .”

If you’re God’s child, you must remember that God isn’t working to build your kingdom, but for the success of his.

If you’re God’s child, you must always view yourself and your world through the window of the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you’re God’s child, remember that your story is marching to an end that is glorious beyond the ability of your mind to conceive.

If you’re God’s child, it’s not your job to defeat evil, your job is to resist temptation. God is in the process of bringing evil to an end.

If you’re God’s child, know that every “What if” your fearful heart can generate is about something that is ruled by your sovereign Savior.

If you’re God’s child, you have little to boast about. Your reconciliation, wisdom, submission, and strength all are gifts of your Savior.

If you’re God’s child, obedience is not an option, to treat what has been command as a personal choice is to put yourself in God’s position.

If you’re God’s chid you have been bought with a price therefore you must not in any situation view your life as belonging to you.

If you’re God’s child you have been bought with a price, so you must not in any situation view your life as belonging to you.

If you’re God’s child, the same grace that you have been given is the grace that you are called to proclaim and extend to others.
