Becoming A Son Of God

God created man and gave him dominion over all His creations. He gave man specific instructions on how to maintain his dominion on the earth but man disobeyed his God. This singular act of disobedience changed the spiritual status of the human race forever. Man’s fellowship with God was broken because of disobedience.

Rom 5:12 (GNB)

Sin came into the world through one man, and his sin brought death with it. As a result, death has spread to the whole human race because everyone has sinned.

However, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ into the world to save all people. Those who will be saved must accept, receive, and believe in what He has accomplished for them on the cross. The Beloved Son of God came and died the death of the cross! He paid the wages of the sin of the world (Romans 6:23). God sent Him because of His love for the world.

John 3:16 (KJV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Jesus took our sins and gave us His righteousness so that we may reign over all situations and circumstances. He brought us, among other things, eternal life in abundance. He came to deliver us from all afflictions of the enemy. He came to give us true dominion on the earth. He came to reconcile us back to the Heavenly Father where there is fullness of joy and pleasures forever more.  He brought us a new covenant of grace based on better promises than what prevailed under the law.

All that Jesus accomplished on the cross are available to those who will heed the following instructions:

Rom 10:8 – 10 (KJV) 

But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

So, you need Jesus Christ in your life if you do not have Him already because without Him you cannot enter into your fullest potential in God. I urge you to decide in your heart to receive Jesus Christ into your life. Follow Him daily and see what transformation will take place in your life. If you want to receive Him now, please pray this prayer with me audibly:

Heavenly Father, I come to you now. I confess my sin before you. Forgive me and cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus. I believe in my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus came in the flesh, died for my sake and rose again on the third day for my justification.  I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I believe now that I am a child of God and that I am born again. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for saving me in Jesus name.

Everybody that has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior has become a son of God and is entitled to an inheritance in Him.

    what about his daughters?


    “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” – John 1:12 KJV. A look at my Greek concordance shows that the Greek word used here for sons was “teknon” and it means both daughter and son. Please note also that in Christ Jesus we are all one and there is neither male nor female – Galatians 3:28. Thank you.
