1 John 3:1-2 NLT
See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!
But the people who belong to this world don’t recognise that we are God’s children
because they don’t know him.
Dear friends, we are already God’s children,
but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears.
But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.
We do not yet know who we are.
We become more deeply alive as we are slowly liberated from identities that are too constricting.
You are an instrument of God.
Don’t leave the instrument sitting in its case. Play!
Leave no part of your instrument unexplored.
Why settle for ‘Three Blind Mice’ when you can play the ‘Gloria’?
From Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
