Relationship



Advent Thoughts

Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name,
he gave the right to become children of God-
children born not of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
John 1:12-13 (NIV)

“. . . to all . . .” Jesus came for all mankind, the poorest, as well as the richest, the most vile, as well as the kindest.
. . .  who received him. . .”  He left heaven to bring us closer to the Father. God sent His Son to earth so that we may learn of His ways and get to know God better. We receive Jesus when we prayer the sinners prayer.
“. . . believed in his name. . .” When we allow Jesus into our hearts, we give Him full reign over our lives. We learn that He can be trusted for everything. 
“. . . he gave the right. . . . ” God granted us the status He wanted us to have- He willingly gave us a place in His family.
. . . to become children of God. . .” God established a relationship between us. He calls us ‘son’ or ‘daughter’. He desires us to be in close relationship with us. We are His children. He loves us unconditionally.
. . . born of God.” We know that God creates us. He molds us to His image. The longer we walk with Him, the more we resemble our heavenly Father.

    1. Annmarie: We are blessed more than we realize. We have many blessings that we might not count as such, until we make a conscious effort to evaluate where we are in our walk with Jesus.
