'How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that WE should be called children of God!'.
Father, You call us 'dear children', so that when Jesus appears we will be CONFIDENT and UNASHAMED when we stand before Him. We are children of Yours, God, and we will not be led astray because Your power over us is strong and more powerful than we realise. We should be NEITHER alarmed nor afraid because we are safe in Your hands. Thank You. You are Jehovah Magenenu our Lord of defence, our King, the Holy One of Israel. Your children, us, are from every nation and nationality and we bow and surrender into Your acceptance and protection and loving care. Amen.
