The right to become God's kids



These are my thoughts on John 1:9-13 where where Jesus says...

9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. (NIV)

You have a home in heaven!


Jesus told us that in His Father's house are many mansions. In this short video, I ponder what it means for us to have our own home in the center of our Abba's heart.

John 14:1-3
1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. (NIV)

Seated in heavenly places!


Without the help of the Holy Spirit, it can be difficult for us to comprehend that we can be in two places at the same time. We are of course, living out our every day lives here on earth, yet the Apostle Paul writes that at the same time, we are hid with Christ in God, seated in heavenly places.

These are my thoughts on Ephesians 2:4-7 where the Apostle Paul writes...
4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

I will be a Father to YOU!



It is so comforting to know that God being a Father to us is not dependent upon our effort or ability to make this happen in our own strength. It is Yahweh Himself that has made this promise and we know that He never changes His mind!

2 Corinthians 6:18...
And,
“I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” (NIV)

The Abba cry!



I believe that the single most loved prayer that our Heavenly Father listens for is the Abba! Father! cry from His kids. In this short reflection, I ponder the life altering implications of what it means to have the right to call God... our Abba!

Romans 8:15-17...
15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. (NIV)
