Sunday Bible Study:

If your looking for the Midwinter blogfest or the Harry Potter blogfest they are below.

The Gospel According to John
John 1: 12 – 13

I’m repeating v. 12 to balance v 13 and because of the way the verses are outlined in the Recovery Version Bible.

v.12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of God, to those who believe into His name,

v. 13 Who were begotten not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Footnote:

12:1 To believe into is to receive.

12:2 For human beings to become children of God is for man to have the divine life and the divine nature.

13:1 out of

13:2 Blood (lit., bloods) here signifies the physical life; will of the flesh denotes the will of fallen man after man became flesh; and will of man refers to the will of the man created by God.

Hi Nancy

As I read this, it reminds me that we do not become Christians because our parents are Christians, we do not become Christians because we do good works, we do not become Christians because we choose God (surprise!), no we become Christians because God chooses us!

Thank you so much for sharing John with us week by week.

Dom, you are absolutely right. God chooses us. We are nothing without Him. Thank you for dropping by once more and leaving a great comment.

I like Dom's comment. So true.:)
