Sons of God (March 12, 2013)

JESUS SAID, "WHOEVER DOES THE WILL OF MY
FATHER IN HEAVEN IS MY BROTHER AND SISTER
AND MOTHER."
( Matthew 12:50 *NIV )

Now it is written that; YOU ARE ALL SONS OF GOD
THROUGH FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS, FOR ALL OF YOU WHO
WERE BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST HAVE CLOTHED
YOURSELVES WITH CHRIST. THERE IS NEITHER JEW NOR
GREEK, SLAVE NOR FREE, MALE NOR FEMALE, FOR YOU
ARE ALL ONE IN CHRIST JESUS. ( Galatians 3:26-28 )

Further; BECAUSE YOU ARE SONS, GOD
SENT THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO OUR HEARTS, THE
SPIRIT WHO CALLS OUT, "ABBA, FATHER." SO YOU ARE NO
LONGER A SLAVE, BUT A SON; AND SINCE YOU ARE A SON,
GOD HAS MADE YOU ALSO AN HEIR. ( Galatians 4:6-7 )

CONSEQUENTLY, YOU ARE NO LONGER FOREIGNERS AND
ALIENS, BUT FELLOW CITIZENS WITH GOD'S PEOPLE AND
MEMBERS OF GOD'S HOUSEHOLD, BUILT ON THE FOUNDATION
OF THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS, WITH CHRIST JESUS
HIMSELF AS THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE.
( Ephesians 2:19-20 )

So; DEAR FRIENDS, NOW WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD,
AND WHAT WE WILL BE HAS NOT YET BEEN MADE KNOWN.
BUT WE KNOW THAT WHEN HE APPEARS, WE SHALL BE
LIKE HIM, FOR WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS.
( 1 John 3:2 )

So, when ever you are feeling down and depressed, just
think about who you are, an heir of your Heavenly Father! That
fact should cheer you up indeed! Amen!

Now I hope you enjoyed this heaping helping of Daily Bread
my friend! Now go out there and give 'um Heaven!
