Children of God

John 1:12-13: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
You are God’s own.
Jesus purchased your life
and you are born by God’s will.

Maybe all your life you were told,
“I never wanted you.”
Or, “You were an accident.”

Maybe you were even left
and you don’t know who your birth parents are…

Hear this: “God planned from the beginning of time to redeem you!”

You are so infinitely valuable to Him
that He came and suffered all the punishment you deserve.

He wants you. He is jealous for you. He will never abandon you or hurt you.
