God always seeks acess into our hearts and lives but we keep on rejecting him

(his own)in john 1v11 refers to all creation.He (Jesus)came to the world that is His result.He came to the world that He made and the world could not recognise Him.The visible world was made by Him and did not know its Maker.

John 1:11 He came to the things which were his and his people did not take him to their hearts. We want GOD to be with us but we do not want him in our Hearts and the control of a man is in the heart. we want to do things in the way we like\want forgetting that we will say LORD LORD and he will say I don't know you.

The OT tells us that God claimed the Hebrews as his own people.
Ergo 'his own' - the Hebrews

 

Daniel Ifesinachi's comment on 2013-07-29 04:42:51:

His own means all the nation remember he is the maker of all things

 

Skylar Sinclair's comment on 2013-07-05 12:05:40:

I take it that "His own" is talking either about those who had been saved in that that had received Jesus Christ into their hearts...OR... that perhaps His "blood" family rejected him. Either way I can certainly relate because our two sons have rejected us and we have no earthly idea why. Rejection is one of the most painful things on earth especially when it's "your own".

 

Reese's comment on 2011-05-05 10:47:12:

here (his own) refers to creation(MAN) not jews. Jesus was rejected by (ALL)not just the jews only
