John 3:15 
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 1:12
 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God even to them that believe on his name.”

What a revelation this week- the difference between before the cross and after the cross!  In John 3:16, Jesus is God’s only begotten Son.  In John 1:12, we are called the sons of God, which would make Jesus no longer His only Son!  Wow! God spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all so that we can now be sons and daughters! (Rom 8:32)   Romans 8:29 “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”  Yes!  Jesus was the first, among MANY brethren-and one of them is me! 1 John 3:1 “What manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God…”   What love! 

We are royalty!  We are chosen!  We are children of God!  Put your shoulders back, put a big smile on your face, no matter what is happening in your life or what you feel like and say “I’m a child of God and I’m favored and blessed!”

Many blessings child of God,
