WHO’S SON ARE YOU?
TEXT: JOHN 1: 12
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his nameâ€ (John 1: 12).
Commenting on â€˜Mistaken Identity,â€™ a writer reported that Tibet operates the caste system. It is a system where oneâ€™s birth determines ones status in society. People are born either as outcasts, priests or lower caste. After birth, it is impossible to move to another status. Biblically there are two kingdoms: the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. Unlike the caste system in Tibet, you have the right to choose, and your choice determines whose son you are, either Godâ€™s or Satanâ€™s. Whoâ€™s son are you? Our text asserts that as many as receive Christ, to them He gives power to become the sons of God. You are not a son/daughter of God without Christ as your Lord and Saviour. You can become Godâ€™s child today if you confess your sins and receive Christ into your life. Thereafter, live a holy life and the blessings of Godâ€™s kingdom will be yours.
Challenge: Surrender your life to Christ and become Godâ€™s child.
Prayer: Dear Lord, make me your child as I surrender my life to you.
Quote: You can become Godâ€™s child today.
