Filhos de Deus
but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
For you are all sons of God, through faith in Christ Jesus.
For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
Blessed are the peacemakers,for they shall be called sons of God.
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship by whom we cry out, »Abba, Father.«
15 He said to them, »But who do you say that I am?«
16 Simon Peter answered, »You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.«
17 And Jesus answered him, »Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.
The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God! And so we are! The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.
But to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God
who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
By this it may be seen who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not do right is not of God, nor he who does not love his brother.
It is for discipline that you endure. God is treating you as sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
If you are left without discipline, in which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.
In other words, it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are reckoned as descendants.
But when the time had fully come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
