SONS and DAUGHTERS

We are not orphans trying to be accepted somewhere. We are Sons and Daughters with a family, home, a loving father and an inheritance. Time we believed who we are & what God has provided for us. You are not a no-thing, you are not a problem, you are a someone and an answer. Maybe you’ve been lied to. Maybe life has dealt you a hand that says you are a no one, doing nothing, going nowhere. As a Born Again believer in Jesus Christ that is not the truth. “You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.”

Sons and Daughters.

“I’M GROWING UP.”

We are not orphans trying to be accepted somewhere.  We are Sons and Daughters with a family, home, a loving father and an inheritance.  Time we believed who we are & what God has provided for us.  You are not a no-thing, you are not a problem, you are a someone and an answer.  Maybe you’ve been lied to. Maybe life has dealt you a hand that says you are a no one, doing nothing, going nowhere.  As a Born Again believer in Jesus Christ that is not the truth.  “You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.” 

John 1 : 12_13  KJV        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: 

13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

DID YOU RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST?

DO YOU BELIEVE IN HIS NAME?

Born of God.  Then you are S/D.  S/D think differently.  A son accepts that whatever His father has is his.  He knows the authority of the father in his life.  Prodigal son.

1 John 3 : 1_3 KJV          Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.  2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.   3  And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

What manner of love has been bestowed on us. It was simply because of His love for us that we became S/D. 

V 2   We don’t fully know what we are going to be like, no one knows the fullness of Jesus.  We can be assured that we are going to be like Him.

V 3            If you have this hope to be like Him, as a S/D, there’s something you have to do. 

Purify yourself.   (to make clean, morally, modest, pure from carnality, sanctify [set apart])  Everything produces after it’s own kind, so God is wanting us to be after Him.

2 Corinthians 6 : 11_18.                  O Corinthians! We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open. 12  You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections. 13  Now in return for the same (I speak as to children), you also be openDo not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15  And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16  And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17  Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”. “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.”

Galatians 3 : 26               For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

We are S/D through faith.  What type of S/D are you?  Obedient, rebellious, self seeking? 

Why does God want us to know our sonship?

Romans 8 : 19        For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

All of creation is waiting for you and me to come forth as S/D.  The problem with creation is more than natural elements it’s more to do with the spiritual world than any other.  What do we have to do with that?  Gen 1 : 28 – God put the BLESSING on man and then told man to be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, subdue and take dominion.   We, the S/D of God are supposed to be taking this BLESSING into this world and causing it to resupply.

When you know you are a S/D and you have all the rights and privileges of the Father you will take this love, grace, mercy, goodness to a lost and dying world.  Rely on who you are, a S/D. 

Romans 8 : 14_17           For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15  For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17  and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. 

Being led by the Spirit of God is a great key in living as a S/D of God.  Not to be led by how we feel or what we think, or what even others think about you. 

Galatians 4 : 7                 Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

No longer slaves but S/D.  

Philippians 2 : 14 _ 15 KJV             Do all things without murmurings and disputings:  15  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

This is how we can show the world what true S/D of God are like.  Watch your mouth.  We are called to shine as lights in this world.

Sons & Daughters trust their father.

Sons & Daughters have faith in their father.

Sons & Daughters follow the leadership oftheir father.

Sons & Daughters do what their fathers says.

Sons & Daughters say the same things astheir father says.

Sons & Daughters are just like their father.
