I Am God's Child

The divine heredity overlaps all inherited human ills. The fact that I am God's child must rule my consciousness, until, like the rising sun, it dissipates the fogs and mists of ancestral inharmony. In a vastly deeper and more vital sense I am God's child than that of my parents. As children of God we have a divine patrimony—spiritual and material. It includes everything that is good; i.e., God-like. "For we are also His offspring." "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are." Not shall be, but are. But instead of this we have called ourselves "miserable worms of the dust." There is no surer way of becoming "worms" than to think that we are worm-like, rather than God-like. God's (our Father's) image in us must be uncovered and brought to the front. "I and my Father are one." This is true of the Christ that was in Jesus, and also of the Savior that is in us. God is not ill, and His children neither inherit disease nor have it sent upon them.
