But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. – Galatians 4:4-5 (NLT)
You are a child of God. It doesn’t matter what has happened to you. It doesn’t matter whether people like you at school or not. To God, you’re important because you’re His child.
God wanted a relationship with you. The Bible is a story of God’s great love for you.
Even when you didn’t deserve it. In those moments where you were far from God, even in those moments that you might have cursed God’s name, God looked at you and choose you. He chose to adopt you into His family.
Christmas is a time where we can think about Jesus and realize how lucky we are to have a God who came down to us. Not because we deserved it in any way. No. Just because He loved us.
So no matter how hard it’s been with your friends and family. No matter how badly you’ve been treated by others, you can know that in the end, God loves you. It’s His love that gives you your worth. People won’t always do the right thing by you, but God will.
So today, challenge yourself to believe God’s love. Challenge yourself to see you how God sees you. Realize that you’ve been adopted in the family of God. God loves you, wants you and thinks you’re His best!
