You Are A Child Of God

grenepages_Tosin Babalola THE PREVAILING WORD_You Are A Child Of God

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26 KJV

The Jews said that it was blasphemy for anyone to be called a child of God.  Therefore, the Jews sought the more to kill Jesus,  because he not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God (John 5:18).  They saw themselves as special people in the sight of God, being the seed of Abraham. However, the appearance of Jesus Christ on the scene reveals to us all that God had in mind. In the sight of God, the real Israelites are not those who are citizens of (earthly) Israel or those who are descendants of Jacob by genealogy.  A man is not a Jew if he is only one outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. No, a man is a Jew if he is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code (Romans 2:25-29). For not all who are descended from Israel are Israelites. Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham’s children (Romans 9:6-8). God’s intention was to make the whole world (both Jews and Gentiles) to become members of one family. You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light (1 Peter 2:9).

Remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. Now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household (Ephesians 2:11-19). Jesus explained to the Jewish leaders that to lay claim on the lineage of Abraham means that they should believe in Him as the son of God or else their lineage is that of the Devil (John 8:33-37).

Right now, there is just one big family of God and we all are members of that family due to our faith in Christ Jesus. The moment you received the Gospel of salvation, you became the son of God for as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name (John 1:12). The Holy Spirit in us is the witness that we are indeed the sons of God, for as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself bear witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together (Romans 8:14-17).

When the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. In addition, because you are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore you are no more a servant, but a son and an heir of God through Christ (Galatians 4:4-7).

Having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved (Ephesians 1:5-6). Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God. By adoption, we have become the children of God (1 John 3:1).

This simply means that your DNA is changed. For being born of God, you have God’s nature running in you. Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God (1 John 5:1). Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter 1:4).  Although you may have your earthly biological father, whose name you bear, there is another Father of all fathers in whose name you exist. The love that he has for you is far more than that which your earthly father can show to you. He knows the desires of your heart before you even ask them and He knows the things that are best for you.

Therefore, as Christians, when we come together, we ought not to take confidence in temporary things such as biological backgrounds, which may degenerate into vainglory and envy; we have a unifying factor - Our Father. He sees all of us as His children and loves us equally. This is why we ought to love and help one another out of a pure mind. We now belong to one family of God, no difference.

Thank God for His fatherhood.
