DCLM Sincere Milk 27 NOVEMBER 2021 — Power to Become God’s Child
TOPIC: POWER TO BECOME GOD’S CHILD
TEXT: JOHN 1:10-13
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
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:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Key Verse: “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” (John 1:12).
Pharez loved to wear his favourite clothes which had become torn and very dirty. He was still wearing the clothes when his dad came in with a lovely new shirt and trouser.
He loved the new clothes and wanted to wear them. His dad refused to give it to him and said, “You must remove and do away with the torn and dirty clothes before you can have the new ones.”
Just like Pharez, for a sinner to have the new life and become a friend of Jesus, he has to do away with the life of sin and Satan. He must be sorry for the life of disobedience, lying, fighting, etc., turn away from them, accept and believe on Jesus as the Saviour.
Jesus Christ is waiting for every sinful child to come to Him. The key verse today states that every sinner that rejects Satan, believes in the Name of Jesus and receives Him, will be forgiven and given power to become a child of God and a friend of Jesus.
Why are you not yet a friend of Jesus? Come to the Lord without delay, and repent now that you still have the opportunity to do so before it is too late. Ask Jesus to come into your heart now. If you are already a friend of Jesus, ask the Lord to help you to always obey and love Him.
Prayer: My Lord Jesus, please come into my heart, save me and give me the power to become Your child.
