The Right to Become Children of God

- John 1:6-13 -

The Lord Jesus came to His own people, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.

Those who do not receive Christ also reject the greatest privilege of being taken into God's family.

Every Christian is a child of God. We are precious to Him and can come to Him in prayer as our heavenly Father.

When God saves us, He brings us into His family.

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!

We are children of God because of His great love which He has lavished so freely upon us.

To know God is a priceless privilege. We have fellowship with Him. He is with us wherever we go. He hears and answers our prayers. He has given us eternal life.

Are you feeling discouraged or fearful?

Let us take heart! We are precious to God.

He is working all things together for good on behalf of His children.

We cannot become children of God unless we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

True Christians gladly acknowledge Jesus as their Lord and they obey His commandments.

They also believe in His name, trusting in Him alone to save them from their sins.

Let us rejoice in God for the great privileges that He have given us!

Man's will and nationality have no bearing on our new birth into the family of God.

It has nothing to do with human procreation.

It is a supernatural, sovereign work of God Himself.
