Have you ever thought about your true identity as a child of God? - Daily Bible Reflections January 3,2014


CALLED BY HIS NAME

 
See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God – 1 John 3:1
 
       Today we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus. According to the CatholicCulture.org the entire month of January is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus. The devotion to the Holy Name is deeply rooted in Sacred Scriptures and was promoted especially by St. Bernardine of Siena, St. John Capistrano and the Franciscan Order.
       The feast is meant to impress on us Christians the dignity of the Holy Name and St. Bernardine promoted it through the inscription of the monogram of the Holy Name (HIS), from the Latin Jesus Hominum Salvator, meaning “Jesus, Savior of men.”
       Do you know what I find even more amazing about Jesus, besides being the “Savior of men?” Because of Him, God the Father calls us His children as well. Because of His love and ultimate sacrifice on the cross, I can call myself God’s daughter, God’s anointed one, God’s powerful champion.
       And guess what? You can do the same, too. Go ahead – call upon the name of the Lord and be saved (Romans 10:13). As a child of God, you’re totally allowed to do so. Tina Santiago-Rodriguez (tina@trulyrichmom.com)
 
Reflection: Have you ever thought about your true identity as a child of God? Just as He called and chose Jesus to be the “Savior of men,” He also calls you to bring Jesus to others.
 
Lord, thank You for the power You have given us through Your Most Holy Name. May I use it to shine Your light to others.
 
St. Genevieve, pray for us.
