Your Rights

To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. John 1:12, 13 NIV

In Other Words
He granted the right to become children of God to everyone who received Him by believing in His name. These are children who are born by God’s decision, not of human will or physical attributes

Small Bites
✓ We become His by believing in Him
✓ He gives us the right to become His family
✓ God’s decision is that following Him must be our decision
✓ In God we have the same rights that Jesus has
✓ Belonging to God stops our longing to belong because in Him we have family
✓ Our culture, nationality, nature, or gender doesn’t prevent our adoption
✓ Adopted children are selected, not expected
✓ Being a member of God’s family may not seem natural, but it is right
✓ We don’t naturally become children of God by being born, we must be reborn
✓ You have the right to remain silent, but don’t; ask to be born again
