Marvel at this and be forever thankful….
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13
If we have repented of our sinfulness and separated ourselves from this old world and its ruler to receive Jesus and His kingdom and His new life, then we are now children of God! What an honor! What a redemption! And how thankful we should be that Jesus made this great transformation possible. He has rescued and ransomed us from our kidnapper; and brought us back home to close relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! And this is just the beginning!
“Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” 1 John 3:2
