The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him. He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him. But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:9-13, NRSV)
I’ve got the power!
Do you remember the song by Snap?
It was in the movie Bruce Almighty…
That is what I thought of as I read this passage today.
“But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave the power to become children of God…”
He gave us the power!
So you have the power through Him to be born not of blood or of the will of the flesh but of God.
So take hold of the power and follow after the creator of the universe!
