“12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”
A child of God is a person who is born into the faith; a person who belongs to the family of God. God, through His Holy Spirit, creates in every child of faith a new creation, a person who lives and acts in faith.
All people of faith are children of God. Our actions and our words should honor God and attest to the fact that we are God’s children. As God’s children, we are led by the Holy Spirit in an ever deepening relationship with God.
Because of our faith and love, we live lives of service, using the gifts God has given us to show others the way to God.
We are children of God. Let us honor God in our words and deeds.
May the love of Christ be with you
