The Rights of Children

MESSAGE - Pastor Dale Thiele

John: That You May Believe

The Rights of Children 

  • The Presence of the Light
  • The Autopsy of Rejection
  • The Anatomy of Reception  

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read John 1:1-18. Who is the “true light”? How does he give “light to everyone”?
  2. Who or what is the “world” in verse 10? Why did the “world not know him”?
  3. Who is “his own” in verse 11? Why did they not receive him? In what ways are you at risk of not receiving him?
  4. What does it mean to “receive him”? Do you receive Christ? What does this look like in your day to day life?
  5. Why is the right or privilege to become a child of God so significant? What are the benefits of being a child of God? 

Memory Verse of the Week:

John 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. (ESV)
