OUR SONSHIP

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Eph 1:5-6

5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

NKJV

Further study: John 18:37, John 3:19(click to read)

God indeed chose you before the foundations of the world to be a partaker of His divine nature. God did this because He has loved you with an everlasting love.

God does not exist in a realm like ours; because God created time, He is not bound by the limitation of time.

You did not Choose God, God chose you and ordained you that you may bring forth fruits.

The relationship that God plans for you is one in which you are His son indeed. You were not always God’s son, but as soon as you were joined with Jesus Christ, that possibility became a reality.

We discussed in previous devotionals that the fact that a person has accepted Jesus does not necessarily mean he will become a son of God. John 1:12 tells us that God gives us power to become sons of God. It is your responsibility to put this power to work.

When you were born again, your spirit was born into God’s Kingdom like a new born baby.Now, you would agree with me that even though the baby of a king is a prince, he never gets to walk in the authority His father’s position commands for him while a baby; he is actually at the mercy of his care givers(see Gal 4:1). That is how it is when you are born again, you need to grow spiritually in order to walk in the fullness of the power and blessings God has bestowed upon you.

The extent of greatness and power that God has put within you will never reach its full manifestation until you grow up to sonship. Many Christians never walk in the realm of divine empowerment because they never grow up spiritually. God’s will for you is that you walk everyday in divine power and enablement.

The way you give time to things you do in order to make your physical life comfortable, give such time too to the things that will make your spiritual life grow.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father thank you for this day, I pray you help me grow to the fullness of Christ. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
