Responsibility of Sons
Sons serve out of love, slaves serve out of fear, and servants serve because they get paid.
4But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. 6Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” 7So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
We are sons and daughters of God most high! Thanks to what Jesus has done, we are Gods children!
We have been made children of God by what Jesus has done. With sonship comes responsibility. We now have a responsibility we didn’t have before Jesus came into our hearts. We are now able to respond to the love of the Father, not as a slave or a servant but as a beloved son. We don’t live in fear because His perfect love in us casts out all fear(1 John 4:16-18). And praise God we don’t get what we deserve but we receive God’s mercy and grace (Ephesians 2:3-5).
Thank you Jesus!
