Dearly Beloved, The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of, John 1:12, “But as many as received Him to them He gave the right to become the children of God to those who believe in His name.” From the above context we come to understand that, God gave the right to become the children of God to all those who believe on His name. Though many accused Jesus, ridiculed and scorned Him, yet the name of Jesus is the most beautiful of all names, for there is no other name in heaven or on earth that has the power to seek and to save that which was lost. Trusting in the name of Jesus is accepting Him as the Son of God, Who came to earth to be our substitute for sin. It is in believing that Christ’s death, burial, and Resurrection procured our salvation. Believing on His name is the beginning of an amazing, everlasting journey, which has given us the authority and privilege of being adopted into the family of God and being given the right to be called “children of God.” Not all however received Him when He came into the world. There are many even today who do not believe on His name, and so they do not have the authority to become children of God. There is only one way to be saved, “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.” There is only one way to become a child of God, “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will become a child of God.” Therefore all who receive Him and believe in His name have the authority to become children of God.
Jesus came as a witness to testify about the Light, so that through Him everyone might believe. Because the Bible says, He came to His own and His own did not receive him. But to all who did receive Him who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God. Hence we are the Sons and Daughters in Christ Jesus and He is our Father whereby we call Him Abba Father. Because we are His children, God has sent the Spirit, of his son, into our hearts, prompting us to call out Abba Father. Isn’t it a great privilege for us to call the Everlasting Father, the God of the whole universe to acknowledge Him as our Father. He says, Heaven is My throne, and Earth is My footstool. He is a great and mighty God. And when we make this God our Father, then we become His children and if children then heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. The greatest blessing in this world is to receive Jesus as our father. Both material and spiritual blessings come from the Father of lights namely Jesus Himself. He is the fountain of blessing. So my dearly beloved make Him your Father. Strengthen your relationship with the Father God as your Father knows all your needs. The Bible says, If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask of Him? Or what man is there among you who if his son asks for bread will give him a stone. Or if he asks for a fish will give him a serpent. If you receive Jesus as your Father, and if you are in need, then He will come down in a marvellous manner and deliver you from your problem. The Bible says, it shall come to pass, “That before they call, I will answer, And while they are still speaking I will hear.” This is the nature of our God. He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, Shall He not see? He is a God who will maintain the cause of the afflicted and do justice for the poor. All that you need to do is to believe in Jesus. Only to those who believe in His name have the right to be called His children. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. So in order to be saved you have to believe in the name of Jesus. Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. To inherit the blessing of the Father you need to believe in Him. God bless you. Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord help us to realize that we have a Father in Heaven who cares for us. Who understands our needs and is ready to help us when we call on His name in truth and spirit. Give us the desire to believe on His name. Teach us to know that there is power in Your name and that the power of God will deliver us from all our problems. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
