But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.
The rights that we have in our lives are all gifts and the greatest of the rights available to us is the right to be a son or daughter of God. To not just be one of his subjects but his child. And by our faith in the person and work of Jesus, we are able to have this right and be unconditionally loved by a perfect heavenly Father.
Jesus I thank you for giving me the right to be a child of God and that I didn’t have to earn it or be good enough for it, but you just accepted me based on my faith in you. Help me to live today in a way that reflects you to those around me.
