John 1:12

4/13/2021

"Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God"

This verse tells us that those who believe in Jesus Christ, he made us children of God.

We are not just an old sinner who has been saved and is now owned by God like a slave. He went further than purchasing us from the slavery of sin by making us children of God. There is a big difference.

This is the key to understand that true freedom is in Christ, because only a master can free a slave and sin is an evil master who never frees anyone.

True freedom can only be obtained when we believe in Jesus Christ, in which his life is traded for ours and he becomes our owners, gaining the rights of our lives.

But he does more than that, because he then frees us and adopts us into his family so that we don't serve him because he is our master and provider like a master-slave relationship, but because he is our father who has given his life for our and made us children.

The relationship is held together by love, as we eagerly serve him for who he is and what he has done for us, rather than how we can gain anything for ourselves.

He is everything we need and his Kingdom provides everything we will ever needs. There is nothing else in all the universe to gain.
