Child of God

Ro 8:16
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:      KJV

How great and wonderful it is to be a child of God!!

Many, though, must rely on the various verses of scripture that ‘prove’ that we are a child of God. (1 John 5:13; John 17:3)

How much better to have the witness of the Spirit within our spirit!!

Sadly, though, we have not had the training, the teaching, the emphasis on learning the life of the spirit. We have had more training and teaching on the sense life. This comes from both the pulpit and the world–mostly from the world, because we do not hear the kind of teaching that helps us to not be of the world.

We would do ourselves a heavenly world of good if we would begin to train ourselves to walk in the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, to listen to the Spirit. This is simple, but not easy.

In fact, being led by the Spirit is an absolute must for those who claim sonship with God:

Ro 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.     KJV

This verse reads in an emphatic sense in the Greek: Ie, “these and no others are the sons of God.”

Does that put a different light on your walk with the Lord?

Does that put a different light on ‘greasy grace?’

    It says to me that I have more responsibility to the relationship with God than just to say Lord I believe in You. When I say that to a fellow person, it usually implies that I will support them, follow them and tell others about what they think.
    When it comes to my relationship with God, then, I should be tithing (support), doig as Jesus commands (follow), and evangelize (tell others about Him).
    It also tells me my actions, thoughts and words should be different from those around me who do not have this relationship. I shouldn’t get angry as quickly, when I do it shouldn’t affect my actions in such a way that I hurt another. I shouldn’t talk down anyone, only build up. My mind should be filled with the Word of God to the extent that I recognize when the Spirit is talking to me.
