  1. We are all God’s children :

    1 John 3 . See what kind of love the Father has given to 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.

    The Jews of Christ’s days rejected Him partly on the basis that they were Abraham’s children so they didn’t need Jesus Christ. Although the promise of the blessing of salvation is connected to the “seed” of Abraham, that seed is Christ. But they missed the point.

    Unbeknownst to them, this blessing can only be attained by faith, faith in Christ, not by physical birth into the Jewish family or descendants. So natural birth cannot do it!
