Fully God’s Child

Today’s inspiring thought is from Charles Spurgeon.  There are no degrees of sonship.  Either we are a children or we are not.  No one is “almost” or “partly” a member of God’s family.  The elder brother was not more related to the father than the prodigal.  “You have children yourselves. One is grown up and out in business, another is still a child in arms with daily needs.  Which is most your child?  ‘Both’ you say.  So the little Christian is as much a child of God as the great one.”  If we are born again, neither David, nor Paul, nor any of the giants of the faith are more welcome or loved than we are!  We have a full and permanent place in the family of God.  The privilege of prayer is ours.  Let this give us courage when we draw near to God and say, “Our Father which art in Heaven.”
