As the Father loves his son, so does Jesus love his children. I am a child of God. I am His beloved. Just saying the words fills my heart and encourages my Spirit.
We are part of the Beloved family of God, for now and for eternity. How sweet it is to be family. Love motivates us to action. Our faith responds with denial of self and an attitude of servant hood. We believe so we act. This is the heart of James, half brother to Jesus. Faith alone is dead if it does not have works as evident fruit.
The word beloved in the Greek is agapetos, which means: beloved, esteemed, dear, favorite, worthy of love.
I have happiness in Christ.
I have strength in Christ
I have unspeakable joy in Christ.
I have freedom in Christ.
I have purpose in Christ.
I have self-control in Christ.
I have hope in Christ.
I have peace in Christ.
I have wisdom in Christ.
I have forgiveness in Christ.
I am beloved in Christ. You are Beloved. Choose to believe.
