Daily Dose - John 1:9-13 - A "Child of God" is One Who Has Received and Believed in Christ

The Gospel of John 1:9-13 (John 1:9, John 1:10, John 1:11, John 1:12, John 1:13)

This text explains that Jesus is the true light and was in the world. However, despite being in the world, Jesus was not recognized as the true light by the people. The text emphasizes that only those who receive and believe in Jesus' name can become children of God. Those who have not yet accepted Jesus should to do so by acknowledging their sin, believing in Jesus' sacrifice and resurrection, and putting their faith in him. This text dispels the myth that everyone is a child of God and makes it clear that being a child of God requires receiving and believing in Jesus.


In addition to the CC Podcast: Daily Dose Devotions, which includes today's Bible overview devotion and many other Bible study texts, Christian Crusaders also publishes two other Christian podcasts: a weekly 30 minute worship service, The CC Broadcast, which is aired on secular and Christian radio stations around the world AND The CC Podcast: Conversations, where we feature inspiring stories from interesting Christians in an interview format.

Along with thanking our Daily Dose Devotions sponsor, The FAMiLY LEADER, we want to highlight two other Christian ministries:

(1) The Cedar Falls Bible Conference, which has gathered annually since 1922 in Cedar Falls, Iowa and features world-class, Bible-based, Gospel-centered preaching, as well as children's and student ministry programming ... all for FREE from the last Saturday in July through the first Saturday in August.

(2) Power to Change Digital Strategies, which recruits and trains anonymous, online Christian mentors to help people who are searching for answers to life's problems on the internet. If you or anyone you know could benefit from an anonymous, online Christian mentor, please visit IssuesIFace.com, a website built and maintained for the purpose of connecting people searching online with Christian mentors willing to provide love, encouragement, and truth.

Please subscribe to or follow this Christian podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, or through our free mobile app, leave a 5-star review, and prayerfully consider supporting us financially. All these steps will help us more effectively promote the Truth of God's Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Thanks!
