“He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 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 1:11-13 NKJV). Though God created all human bodies from the same dirt, with the same blood, each with its own soul, we must choose spiritually “to become children of God.” This is not by flesh and blood birth, or man-made religions, but only being born “of God” that saves our soul. Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15 NKJV). God’s spiritual family are those saved by obeying, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16 NKJV).
