How do you know you can call yourself a child of God? With all the insecurities we face, how can we be sure and secure in our identity in Christ?

How Do You Know You Are A Child Of God?

The non-Christian basks in sin, the Christian is one who loves righteousness and wants to obey God but sometimes fails.

“In Sub-Saharan Africa, and I’m sure it’s the same here in Uganda, almost anybody you meet in the streets and you say to them, “Are you a Christian?” tend to say, “Yes I am.” Even individuals who are living morally depraved lives, they want to pull out some baptismal certificate (showing) that they belong to the right camp. And the Bible here is saying, “That’s not the point.” The point rather is has my life been changed? Am I someone who now delights in obeying God?”
