“But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name.” John‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Believing in Jesus, trusting in and relying on His death and resurrection, gives me rights! The right to call myself His child, with all the authority that comes with His name. The right to have a role within His family knowing I am loved and cared for by Him, the right to resist the enemy and see him flee, the right to inherit eternal life! It’s wonderful and powerful to know who I am and who I belong to. What a privilege that Jesus would let me receive and welcome Him as I’ve realised that He receives and welcomes me 😊
