Unto them that believe, he hath given the right and power to become sons of God

CharlesSpurgeon2. By “the sons of Jacob” are meant, in the second place, persons who enjoy peculiar rights and titles. Jacob, you know, had no rights by birth; but he soon acquired them. He changed a mess of pottage with his brother Esau, and thus gained the birthright. I do not justify the means; but he did also obtain the blessing, and so acquired peculiar rights. By “the sons of Jacob” here, are meant persons who have peculiar rights and titles. Unto them that believe, he hath given the right and power to become sons of God. They have an interest in the blood of Christ; they have a right to “enter in through the gates into the city-” they have a title to eternal honors; they have a promise to everlasting glory; they have a right to call themselves sons of God Oh! there are peculiar rights and privileges belonging to the a sons of Jacob.
