Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – John 8:35


Teen devotionNow a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. – John 8:35-36

I remember a time when I was attending youth group and we were writing on a dry erase board. One teen wrote on the board accidentally with a permanent marker. At the time we didn’t realize it, so a few weeks later when we tried to use the board again, we couldn’t. The marker had dried and the teen’s writing was on the board permanently.

As much as we tried scrubbing with soap and water, we couldn’t get rid of the teen’s writing on the board. That reminds me of today’s Bible verse. When we accept Jesus into our heart, we become sons and daughters of God.

We have a place in God’s family. We belong to God’s family forever. It’s in that family we find our identity, our place, and our purpose. So today if you struggle with feeling like you don’t belong, realize that you do. You’re a member of God’s family and you do belong. You’re who God says you are!
