Galatians 4:7-9

Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir also through God's own act. But at one time, you Gentiles, having no knowledge of God, were slaves to gods which in reality do not exist. Now, however, having come to know God--or rather to be known by Him--how is it you are again turning back to weak and worthless rudimentary notions to which you are once more willing to be enslaved?

John 8:34-36

1 John 3:1-2

See what marvellous love the Father has bestowed upon us--that we should be called God's children: and that is what we are. For this reason the world does not recognize us--because it has not known Him. Dear friends, we are now God's children, but what we are to be in the future has not yet been fully revealed. We know that if Christ reappears we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.

1 John 4:19-20

We love because God first loved us. If any one says that he loves God, while he hates his brother man, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother man whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.

Revelation 12:10

Then I heard a loud voice speaking in Heaven. It said, "The salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God have now come, and the sovereignty of His Christ; for the accuser of our brethren has been hurled down--he who, day after day and night after night, was wont to accuse them in the presence of God.

Hebrews 3:2-6

How faithful He was to Him who appointed Him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's house! For Jesus has been counted worthy of greater glory than Moses, in so far as he who has built a house has higher honour than the house itself. For every house has had a builder, and the builder of all things is more.
Moreover, Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant in delivering the message given him to speak; but Christ was faithful as a Son having authority over God's house, and we are that house, if we hold firm to the End the boldness and the hope which we boast of as ours.
