Imparting life to the nations, one person at a time

November 22: Sons by The Spirit

“The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.” Romans 8:19 (NIV)

Read: Romans 8:11-19; Ephesians 3:10-11

The Holy Spirit will bear witness in our hearts that we are “sons” of God and then He will work in us to produce the authority and power of “sonship.” Every born again believer is a child of God. But the plan of the Father is to develop us into “sonship status” through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Naturally speaking, the main differences between children and adults are their age, maturity, understanding, and abilities.  The Bible enjoins us to be children (or innocent) in matters of evil, but adults in understanding (I Corinthians 14:20). No matter how long ago you got saved, God wants you to press forward in your maturity which is directly proportional to your understanding of spiritual things.

The Father wants to show off to the world and to principalities and powers, His multifaceted wisdom being revealed through His sons. We are God’s showpieces. Actually, creation itself is waiting for the manifestations of these ‘sons’. The world is waiting for you and I to bring forth the multi-dimensional graces of God invested in us.  “Sons” are the actively growing, mature children of God. They know the ways of God. This is why we go through seasons of preparation; to mature us. Glory belongs to “sons” not to the ‘children’. “Sons” can handle the ‘weight of glory’ children cannot. The glory would destroy them. So commit your self to active spiritual growth today. Allow God’s glory to be seen through your life today. You are blessed in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
