Hard Truth

This is a hard truth the world does NOT want to hear…

While we, as human beings, have all been made in the image of God, as descendants of Adam; we are NOT all God’s children.

The Good News is, God is ready and will adopt and forgive ANY and ALL who come to him in repentance and accept Jesus, as God’s gift of love and righteousness, making us all children of God and building a loving Father/child relationship with us, even indwelling us with his own Holy Spirit…

For the Scriptures are clear in many places:

“But to all who have received him – those who believe in his name – he has given the right to become God’s children”
John 1:12 NET

“(See what sort of love the Father has given to us: that we should be called God’s children – and indeed we are! For this reason the world does not know us: because it did not know him.”
1 John 3:1 NET

“By this the children of God and the children of the devil are revealed: Everyone who does not practice righteousness – the one who does not love his fellow Christian – is not of God.”
1 John 3:10 NET

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children. And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ) – if indeed we suffer with him so we may also be glorified with him.”
Romans 8:14‭-‬17 NET

“And although you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you formerly lived according to this world’s present path, according to the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the ruler of the spirit that is now energizing the sons of disobedience, among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest…”
Ephesians 2:1‭-‬3 NET

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you are saved!”
Ephesians 2:4‭-‬5 NET

“But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous, forgiving us our sins and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9 NET

“For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him. The one who believes in him is not condemned. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.”
John 3:16‭-‬18 NET
