AND BECAUSE YOU ARE SONS, GOD HAS SENT THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO OUR HEARTS CRYING ABBA! FATHER! SO YOU ARE NO LONGER A SLAVE BUT A SON AND IF A SON THEN A HEIR THROUGH GOD (GALATIANS 4:6-7)
You are a child of God brought into the family by the power and grace of the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus on the cross for you. Most often we believers are called the children of God but we don’t live our lives in response to the truth and instead live out of the mindset of orphans. With a good father, children don’t worry about their needs or wants, they don’t wonder if they will be able to eat or if they are loved and even if they have place in this world. Our Lord desires for us to have secured peace, love and joy.
“But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man but of God.” (John 1:12-13) Who ever is God’s child becomes a co-heir with Christ. This means that everything that is God’s is yours. He shares His kingdom with you. Your heavenly Dad’s love for you knows no bounds. His love is pervasive, powerful and freely given. He is a father that takes full responsibility of His own.
Your heavenly Father will strengthen you, teach you, develop you and give you a life of passion and meaning. To be the child of God is to be loved, liked and completely cared for. all you have to do is to have faith in Him and believe he will do what ever He promised.
