John 1:12-13: Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
Reflection: We can choose our relatives! We didn’t have a choice about who our parents were, and what human family we would be born into, but John tells us we do have a choice about whether we become part of God’s family.
How do we do this? John explains the way. We receive Jesus, believing in his name, which means ‘Saviour’. We accept his death for our sins and God accepts us as his children.
Becoming a child of God has nothing to do with being born into a ‘Christian’ family, or living in a ‘Christian’ country or even attending church. It has everything to do with accepting Jesus for ourselves, no one else can do it for us. God has many children, but no grandchildren
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you that I am your child because I accepted Jesus gift of forgiveness for my sins and believed that he is my saviour. Amen
