1 John3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God….. Just as we have the DNA of our natural parents and have some of their attributes, nature, and characteristic traits, we must realize that the same goes for our spirit man. We are born of God’s spirit therefore we’ve received his DNA, nature, and character. But it’s up to us to develop it in our lives.
In John1 it says that we have been given the power to become the sons of God. Not only are we born into sonship but there is also a requirement that we mature and are changed into the fullness of sonship. This means that we must deny ourselves the right to live or behave any way after the old man and allow God’s nature and character to be developed in us. We cannot allow ourselves to abide in a place of darkness, lovelessness, or carnality. We must choose to love. We must choose to walk in temperance and self control. These are all things that we’ve been seeded with but must make the choice to allow them to be developed in our lives. If we refuse, we will stay in a place of darkness, separated from the fullness of the life of God that’s been made available to us. .
Let’s choose today to allow God’s prefect work to be done in us to bring us into the fullness of sonship.
