In John 1:11-13, we are given one of the most beautiful descriptions of salvation. God gives the right to become his children to anyone who believes in Jesus. This is the Christian’s true identity.
“He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:11–13, ESV)
