Here is a great promise. It is to everyone. No exceptions. And …. it is a bold promise. We serve a bold God.

I believe that Jesus is the Messiah. He is God’s very own Son. That makes me God-begoten. I am His child. God is so good that he grants this privilege to everyone who believes.

Our mission, and God’s plan, is for us to love the children of God. There is a test to show that we love God. Do we, in fact, keep God’s commands.

Every person who believes that Jesus is, in fact, the Messiah, is God-begotten. If we love the One who conceives the child, we’ll surely love the child who was conceived. The reality test on whether or not we love God’s children is this: Do we love God? Do we keep his commands? The proof that we love God comes when we keep his commandments and they are not at all troublesome.
