Bible in 90 Days: No Longer Orphans!

We were in John a couple days ago and these words just blew me away ...

12. Yet to all who received 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 human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.  John 1:13-14

We are not orphan's. Nope. Not when we choose Christ. We become children of God, children of the King, Sons and Daughters! Absolutely. And, what an amazing breath of fresh air. God is our Father and He is perfect and He loves us perfect and He ONLY does what is good on our behalf and He delights in His children's success. He can not be compared with any earthly Fathers, those who are less than great and those who are, by earthly measure, awesome Dads. Why? We all fall short, but NOT God. Never God.

I am not an orphan, I am a Daughter of the King! Selah!

* And, in case you are looking to read up some more on this amazing truth, I would recommend "Sons and Daughters" by Brady Boyd.
