“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” (Romans 8:14, ESV)
If you are Christ’s . . . you are a “son of God.” But . . . Do you have the Faith of a ‘son’?
This is the truth featured in my book: We’re the ‘sons of God’ . . . So What?: Believe God About Who You REALLY Are!
Now . . . do you believe the text from Romans which you just read? If you walk away from this verse unchanged, then Jesus said that the enemy of your soul steals away the Word. As a result, the truth of God will be unfruitful in you. You will believe what people tell you about yourself, instead of what God tells you about yourself.
Does your own self-talk (or the narrator in your head) agree with what the Word says or do you need to be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Rom. 12:1-2)?
It’s time for believers to believe God about who HE says you really are!
Once you do, God can use you in the family business–bringing in the Kingdom. Are you about your Father’s business . . . or yours?
Jesus wondered if when He came again he would find faith in the earth. What a strange concern. Unless of course, he understood the propensity of the world to erode our faith. The world wants to squeeze you into its mold. Even other belivers and “Christians” don’t want you to believe you’re a ‘son’ of the living God. We are held in check by their misunderstanding of humility (much more on this in my book). Suffice it to say that unless you understand how important it is to be who God has called you to be, you might as well keep telling yourself that you don’t amount to much and that you will be powerless until Jesus returns.
But if you get it, faith will come from hearing the Word that God has spoken. You will begin to know who you really are. Then the Father will create a hunger in you to understand and know how to operate in the realm of a son–you will learn how to stand in the authority of your calling. That’s when you find FEW mentors. Fortunately, Jesus said that He would leave you a Counselor. His role is to lead you into all truth concerning who Jesus is and what your standing is before the Father. He will convince you that you are finally “set apart,” “holy,” a member of God’s own household as you partake of the divine nature. All who are led by the Spirit of God “are the sons of God.” Today. Now!
As the Father gives you more understanding, you will see more opportunity to trust Him. To believe and to stand in the authority to bless. Then what an adventure you’ll be on!
See some of what’s ahead. Know the assurance of those things to which you’ve been called. That’s why I wrote the book. May the Lord bless it to your reading.
