John 1: 9-13
9The true light that gives life to everyone was coming into the world.
The True Light, Word, Jesus, came into the world through incarnation. John 1:14, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us”.
10He was in the world and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. 11He came to that which was his own , but his own did not receive him.
Even though He created the world, the world did not even notice Him when he arrived. Even His own people, the Jews, by and large, did not receive Him.
12Yet to all who receive him, to those who believe in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision, or of a husband’s will but born of God.”
But all who receive Him and believe in His name will be born again into God’s kingdom to become His children. They are “God begotten, not blood begotten, not flesh begotten, not sex begotten”, the message paraphrase. John 3:3, “no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again”. John 3: 5, “no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.”
Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of eternal Life, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
