Knowing You Are A Child Of God Is A Powerful Anti-Depressant!


There are hundreds of fables and stories, some true, some not, of individuals that, upon discovering their royal heritage, make a miraculous turn about when it comes to their characteristics and the manner in which they carry themselves. They, of course, are the same person as before, but they view themselves differently then they have in the past. Their self-respect increases and they start to live a life that is fitting for one of noble birth.

Being told that one’s heritage descends from ‘pond scum’ is not a thought that would ennoble anyone to excel. Knowing you are a son or daughter of God is a powerful anti-depressant that promotes the best in an individual and in how he views the world and his surroundings.

If we are to believe the Bible, from the beginning, our heritage is certain.

‘So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis 1:27), which is later confirmed by Paul in his teachings of the Romans. He wrote, enforcing the concept taught by the Savior:
‘The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God” (Romans 8:16)

We are of royal heritage! For this reason sent Jesus the Christ, his disciples unto the world with the good news. It is news that, if understood properly, elevates the soul and lifts the spirits to heights that are beyond our wildest dreams.
