Passage: John 1:12
Series: Light from the Light Channel
Duration: 21 mins 22 secs

We cannot hold God to a promise if we are not the one to whom He has made the promise. The pledges God makes to man are, with one exception, promises He makes to those who are in His family. The exception relates to those promises God makes about how to become a member of His family. Joining God’s family is not a matter of physical birth, racial heritage, moral excellence, spiritual sensitivity, denominational association, or anything else we accomplish. God does not adopt us on the basis of our talent, position, social standing, accomplishments, intelligence, or birth. From the wealthy to the poor, from the mighty and powerful to the weak and simple, all enter into God’s family the same way. The clearest promise of this is found in the fourth gospel of the New Testament, the Gospel of John.

“But as many as received Him [Jesus Christ], to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:” John 1:12
