The last verse Lee Strobel read as an Atheist is still one that ministers to him. For those wondering what it means to become a believer, this verse is for them.
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:12)
Strobel said, “If you look at that verse, it forms an equation of what it means to become a child of God: Believe + Receive = Become.”
We believe Jesus is the Son of God who died for our sins and rescues us for eternal life. We receive this amazing gift and the we become a child of God.
