The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and through the world was made through hi, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not 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. John 1:9-12
Thank Jesus for the glorious gift of forgiveness. He is your Savior-God, and He alone can give you this blessing. He went to exorbitant expense to procure this gift for you. You receive forgiveness and became His child by receiving Him and believing in His Name. This Name, Jesus, means the Lord saves.

There is no condemnation for those who are in Him. He wants you to enjoy the wonder of walking through your life as His follower, totally forgiven! The best response to this wondrous gift is to live in gratitude, seeking to please Him, because it’s already yours. Just let your desire to please Him flow readily out of your grateful heart. Thanking Jesus frequently will help you stay close to Him, ready to follow wherever He leads. Rejoice, beloved, for through Him the law of the Spirit of Life has set you free!
