"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:" - John 1 V12
"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children on God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him." - 1 John 3 V1
The moment we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and trust Him to be our Lord and Saviour, God gives us a special place in His sight. We get the privilege to become the children of God. God always loved us and He will continue to love us, because we are His children. For God did not send His Son to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him (John 3 V17). Now the invitation by God to believe on His Son is to every single person. Every single person will have to make the choice to believe or not to believe, and there is no middle ground. The world does not know the Lord Jesus Christ, because it did not believe.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
