“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12)
Meditation one: How can a child of God receive the glorious status? Does it depend on your good deeds? Does it rely on your merit? No, you can’t. No matter how much good deeds we do, we also do a lot of bad things. We must accept Jesus Christ as the Lord of Life with faith. Believe in the Lord is not a question of knowing Him or not, but a matter of accepting, or believing in Him or not. Knowing something only means remaining in one’ brain while accepting means residing inside the heart. One can be justified by faith when with the heart one believes. One can be saved when with the mouth one confesses. (Rom 10:10)
Meditation two: Are you now a child of God, or a prodigal or an orphan? God wishes all people to be saved, and He has always called upon people, “come home! Come home!” Don’t wander any more, don’t hesitate any more. Just humbly come to the Abba Father, ask for His mercy and forgiveness. Once you sincerely demonstrate your determination to repent, then He will set you free immediately and give you a new soul and eternal life.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, thank You for Your grace in Jesus Christ and let me be Your child today. Teach me how to live out the testimony of a child of God, so that others may be blessed through me. I pray in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
