In other words, it is not the children by physical descent who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring. Romans 9:8 NIV
God shows no partiality. Your earthly citizenship to a country, your race, your political affiliation matter not to the Creator of the universe and everything within it. God looks on the inside. He sees the heart and soul. He knows of the desires of those who belong to Him. Through faith in Christ Jesus we are reborn and through Christ we are deemed righteous in the eyes of the Father. God has chosen you to be His adopted son or daughter. It was His choice, and not your doing. We are so wonderfully blessed by God. How is it that He looks so favorably upon us, dust of the earth? We must always be thankful for that which we have been given, giving the glory and honor to the Father and the Son!
