Unless you believe that I am He, you shall die in your sins
I am accepted...
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light."
(1 Peter 2:9)
To be royalty we must be related to the King. Jesus is the King of kings and we are in the royal family of God by the new birth. We are King's kids.
