Verse of the Day – John 1:12

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

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Isn’t it incredible that we are called children of God!? But that is exactly what we are! (cf. 1 John 3:1-3) We are God’s children. Our Father created the universe with its billions and billions of planets. Our Father paints a new sunset everyday and chases away the darkness every morning. Our Father not only loves us, but claims us as his own and will bring us to his eternal home. Why? Because we heard his message in Jesus. Because we received his grace offered in his Son. Incredible! Glorious! Grace!

My Prayer…

Abba Father, thank you for claiming me as your child through Jesus, in whose name I praise and thank you. Amen.
