The True Light


There was a man sent from God whose name was John.
He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe.
He himself was not the light;
He came only as a witness to the light.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.
He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, 
the world did not recognize Him.
He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him. 
Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, 
He gave the right to become children of God 
children born not of natural descent, 
nor of human decision or a husband’s will, 
but born of God.
The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. 
We have seen His glory, 
the glory of the one and only Son, 
who came from the Father, 
full of grace and truth.
John 1:6-14

"the right to become children of God"...it seems outrageous.
And indeed, it leaves me speechless.
