I heard an aquintance of mine say “we are all God’s children”. It made me think to what my friend told me years ago “we are not all God’s children, we are all His creation”
What’s the difference, you say? Well being a Creation and being a Child make a huge difference. One of the differentiators is having a right to possess the Father’s inheritance.
John 8:37-47 makes it clear that some people are the children of God and some are not. Sorry to report that, but the good news is, anyone can become a Child of God if they aren’t already one.
They just need to pray to God to transition them from being a sinner to a Child. This is the only prayer that God hears from a sinner or a non adoptive one, as God does not hear sinners (John 9:31):
Oh Lord, i recognize I was born in sin and am a sinner.
But I believe that you have sent your son, Jesus Christ to die for my sins.
He was born of a virgin & the Holy Spirit and was raised up from the dead and lives even today.
I ask Him now to come into my life and heart.
Jesus, change me to what you want me to be and give me the Holy Spirit, that He may guide me into all truth.
Thank you for forgiving me and saving me.
I am now a Child of God!
Praise the Lord, you are welcomed to the family! Please find a place to grow in His Word and read the Bible, KJV.
