ARE YOU A CHILD OF GOD❓
“The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Romans 8:16).
In these days of identity crisis we need it to be resounded that we have royalty in our DNA. Every born again child of God should be proud of his or her spiritual pedigree. The knowledge that you are a child of God should sufficiently define your self-esteem, value system, worldview and modus operandi.
Interestingly, we are told that as children of God we possess all the communicative attributes of God. We are exactly like our father. “. . .For as He is, so are we in this world”(1 John 4:17). You will notice here that it did not say, “As He is, so shall we be.” It says, “As he is so are we.” Furthermore, it did not say as He is so are we going to be in heaven. No! “As He is, so are we in this world.”
This understanding should make us live as standard bearers. We are to exercise authority on earth as Jesus did. We are to be the carriers of the presence of Jesus. We are not to be afraid of the devil for greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. We are to live with the full assurance that His divine power has made available for us all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). We are to live as Jesus lived when He was here on earth. As children of God, we should avoid all sort of negative confession, we should avoid every form of fear, we should learn on how to talk to our challenges instead. For the God we serve doesn’t fail.
Our authority is in our identity.
Lord, help me to appreciate the fact that I am Your child and a joint-heir with Christ.
