But as many as received him, to them he gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye are without chastisement, of which all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh who corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
34 And he looked around on them who sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
35 For whoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
Rebuke not an elder, but exhort him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, by which we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit himself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint–heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be glorified together.
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
7 Therefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
26 For ye are all children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth for ever.
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good to all men, especially to them who are of the household of faith.
And if one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
For this cause I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
Having predestinated us to the adoption of children to himself by Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will,
To the praise of the glory of his grace, in which he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and aliens, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth to an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are built together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
