Sonship with God

Acts 17 (KJV)

God Has Two Types of Sons

  • Begotten-God has only one Begotten Son
    • Jesus is God’s only Begotten Son
    • God is Jesus’ natural & spiritual Father
    • God loved Jesus so much because Jesus was obedient
  • Adopted-All those who have been born again Eph 1:4-5
    • Now are we the sons of God I John 3:1-2
    • We love God because his love is shed abroad in our hearts Rom 5:5
    • As Jesus was obedient, God expects the same from us

How Were We Adopted?

  • Through the blood of Jesus, his atonement Eph 1:6-7
    • God made us the accepted in the beloved Eph 1:6
  • God has begotten us again unto a lively hope I Pet 1:3-4
    • We are kept by the power of God through faith I Pet 1:5
  • By the Holy Spirit- The Holy Spirit causes us to speak in tongues Rom 8:15

We Are Joint-Heirs With Christ

  • God appointed Jesus to be heir of all things Heb 1:1-2
  • We are joint-heirs with Christ through the Spirit Rom 8:17

What Do All Believers Inherit?

  • Eternal life Titus 1:2
  • The Holy City Rev 21:2
    • There are streets paved with transparent gold Rev 21:21
  • Mansions John 14:1-3

What Must We Do To Receive All Our Inheritance?

  • We must accept Him- As many as received him to them gave he power to become the sons of God John 1:12
  • Hang in there when you are going through
    • God chastens those whom he loves Heb 12:8
    • This will help us to maintain sonship Heb 12:6-11
  • Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling Phil 2:12
  • Sometimes we make unwise choices but, stay in the church and keep on praying
