For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

“Behold I and the children which God hath given me”

--Hebrews 2:13--

  “The word “Behold” is used in the Holy Scriptures to arouse our attention.  As John Gill stated, “.. the saints are children with respect to God, who has adopted them, and with respect to Christ, who is their everlasting Father; that they were given to Christ as His spiritual seed and offspring, as His portion, and to be His care and charge;  is worthy of attention and calls for admiration, that Christ and His people are one, and that He is not ashamed to own them before God and men.”  The Apostle John said, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God. ...” (1 John 3:1).  We, God’s enlightened children, who are sinners by birth, sinners by nature; sinners by choice, and sinners by practice, are “Children of the Most High God”!  Oh! how we should BEHOLD the wonders of God’s Sovereign, Amazing Grace and Mercy He freely bestows on His children who were given to Jesus Christ in the Eternal Covenant of Grace.

     We are Children of the Most High God because of a DIVINE PROMISE.  God our Father promised us to Jesus Christ His Darling Son, conditional upon the perfect obedience of Christ the God-man when He came to this earth to do His Father’s will.

     We are Children of the Most High God because of a DIVINE PAYMENT.  Jesus Christ our Savior paid the ransom price in full for all our sins when He purchased us with His own precious blood.

     We are Children of the Most High God because of God’s DIVINE POWER.  We were helplessly and hopelessly lost in a state of spiritual deadness.  “But God, who is rich n mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickend us together with Christ (by grace ye are saved)” (Eph.2:4 - 5).  “It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth NOTHNING” (John 6:63).

     BEHOLD!  BEHOLD!  BEHOLD!  Behold Jesus Christ and the children which God hath given Him, and be filled with perpetual awe, wonder and praise to Him who has chosen us to be Children of the Most High God!”
