You did Receive Him?

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God– children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

— John 1:12-13 NIV

What makes people think they are not grafted into the family of God through His faithful son Abraham, and by the way of the Blood of the Lamb, is terrifying to me.  How we deny the heritage of Christ to make Him of Himself.  To take Him out of the Blood line of promise to cause another family to be established.  They call this family Christian.  Yet, we have the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  So, how can we be a separate line from the promised line God set up through His faithful servant Abraham?  I know that most people don’t think like this, I do. I have to remind us that we a descendants of the family of Abraham, ei, the sons of Hebrews, and Jews through Christ.  We do not have to have the direct blood of our Faith Father to be in this family, we have Christ,  we have Yeshua.  I am no longer denied the right I have received of the Lord is through the shed blood of the Lamb of God.  I am received into this family that now I love.  I think it is terrible for an ADOPTED child to search for parents who didn’t do right by them just for a sense of identity.  When those adoptive parents loved you and took you in when you had no one.  It is a silent but deadly slap in the face.  They may not mean any harm by it and the adoptive parents might encourage it.  I just know I would be wounded a bit.  God is our true Creator, He didn’t abandon us.  We left His care, we ran away and denied the family connection.  So, He gives us another opportunity to be in the line of faith and love.
