Sonship: the lavish love of God in Jesus Christ toward believers

God is the Almighty who created all things, all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present.

He is filled with glory, honor and righteousness.

He is sinless and perfect in wisdom and glory.

He is immortal and lives forever in unapproachable light.

Nobody had seen God because man had sinned and could not enter His presence.

But God loves us so much that He wanted to make us His beloved Sons.

He wants to give us all His glory and share it with us!

He sent His Son, Jesus, filled with the Father’s glory, who came in the flesh.

2 Corinthians 4 ” For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.”

Jesus came for one reason alone, to make you and me Sons of God, brothers and sisters of Christ.

Hebrews 2 “10 In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. 11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.”

When Jesus claimed that He is the Son of God, the Pharisees accused Him of blasphemy. It’s because under the Law, man could never be a child of God and never be equal to God.

John 5 “18 For this reason they tried all the more to kill him;….he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.”

See how much God loves us that He gave us ALL His glory, making us believers HIS SONS !

1 John 3 “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. “

God became a man through His Son, Jesus who died on the cross to take away all our sins.

He rose from the dead, proving He is the Son of God, being equal to God.

All who believe in Jesus, are the Sons of God, being EQUAL with God.

God loves us so much that He has given us ALL HIS GLORY FREELY.

We are sinless, immortal, righteous, perfect, sons of God.

We are seated in heavenly places in Jesus Christ, being equal to God (Ephesians 2:4-8)
