Belonging to God

“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” – John 1:12 

In the journey of life, one fundamental truth stands firm: because of Jesus, we have the incredible privilege of belonging to God. Through Jesus Christ, we not only have the opportunity to know God but also to be known by Him, to be forgiven and accepted as His beloved children. 

Imagine planning a family vacation to Hawaii. Who would go on this memorable trip? It’s simple: my family – my wife, my children, and myself. Why? Because they belong to me; they’re part of my family. Others may be nice, smart, or even close friends, but if they’re not part of my family, they won’t join us on our vacation. 

The pathway to heaven is paved with the profound truth of belonging to God. The Bible is unequivocal on this matter: those who belong to God here on earth will belong with Him in eternity. Belonging to God isn’t a mere formality or a superficial affiliation; it’s a deep, intimate relationship characterized by love, trust, and obedience. 

So, let me ask you candidly: do you belong to God? Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord? Have you received His forgiveness and embraced His offer of adoption into God’s family? Belonging to God isn’t about religious rituals or outward appearances; it’s about a heart surrendered to His will and a life transformed by His grace. 

If you haven’t yet made the decision to belong to God, I urge you to do so today. Receive Jesus into your life, believe in His name, and embrace the privilege of becoming a child of God. As you do, you’ll discover the profound joy and security of belonging to God, both now and for all eternity.
