This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at

Word of Inspiration: We are Adopted by God

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, 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)

We do not have to be blood descendants of Christ or born a Jew to be children of God. We don't have to accomplish great works or be special people to be chosen. If we want to belong to God, according to His will, not ours, we have that right. We are his adopted children. What do all good parents do for their children? They love them. We are greatly loved by the God of the universe!
