Freedom Phrase-Belonging in God’s Family

June 14th, 2019 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Redemption, today’s Freedom Phrase is based on John 1, verses 11 and 12.

Speaking of Jesus, “He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

God’s grace invites us into God’s family. Faith is like walking through the door that has been opened for us. What does it mean to receive Jesus and believe in his name? The meaning of Jesus’ name is “The Lord saves.”  Joseph was told to name him Jesus because He would save His people from their sins. So, that is what it means to believe in His name–to trust Jesus to save us from our sins.  

His grace will cleanse us from our guilt and give us a place of acceptance where we are known as a child of God. 

Through Jesus, we are set free to believe in His name and belong to His family.
