"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."
John 1:12-13.

It is a special privilege to say 'Father' while addressing the Mornarch of the universe, the judge of all the earth, the only potentate, Kings of kings and Lord of Lords, God Almighty.

We are truly children of the most High God with full rights and privileges. We have the same divine nature of our Father. We are gods as He said; "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes." (Psalms 82:6-7)

He called them gods because they were children of God and so are we. And because we understand it, we shall not die like mere men and fall like one of the princes. We are extraordinarily divine.

As gods we have been given the privilege forgive sins. "And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained." (John 20:22-23).

As sons of God we have power to live sinfree lives. "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." (1 John 3:9). Sons of God are not subject to the power of sin and death. "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." (Romans 8:2).

I am born of God. I am a partaker of the divine nature hence the Father calls me god for I am made in His image.
