“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God”. (John 1:12).
We were in a sense, orphans and Jesus felt compassion for us because we were “helpless”, like sheep without a shepherd. When we were lost and confused in our sin, He came into our lives and adopted us.
Being a child of God means that we have Him to guide us, protect us and care for us, just as any good father does. It also means that we are transformed – as we spend time with our father, we adopt His holiness, His fierce kindness, His love and His nature. There is no greater power, right, privilege than that which has made us sons of God, spiritual adopted into God’s family and conformed to His image. You have received ability by believing and accepting the work of Jesus Christ into your life. You are a member of the strongest family on earth, you are now a member of the most influential family on earth. The Kingdoms of men respond and respects the verdict of this family that you are now a member of. God is not just God and Saviour but your father, you can approach him from a family sense not just from a sinner and Saviour sense. He is your saviour and your loving Daddy. You have the right privileges as a child of God to access FATHER GOD. You are God’s kid.
