Message of the Day: How did People Respond to the Coming of Jesus?

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13, NASB)

Jesus’ coming into the world is compared to a person’s coming to his hometown. However, his own people refused to receive him. But those who did whether Jew or Gentile, became his true people, they became God’s genuine children. That relationship is a privilege. They received it not by blood or birth into a particular family or country but only through their personal decision to receive Jesus Christ. (John 1:10-13)

Membership in God’s family is a gift from God, it is free and only through His grace. It is not a product of human effort. It depends however, on a person’s response to the coming of Jesus, reject or receive him. May we receive this gift today and allow Jesus to welcome us into His family.
