The Scripture for Pastor Mona's Sermon on Sunday morning talks about how God chose us...What a thought when you think of it that the God of all things chose me to bless.
Ephesians 1 3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
Pastor Mona was mentioning that we can be God's children still in His house but because of a faulty belief system , one that doesn't line up to truth can cause us as God's people to live like paupers even in the face of such blessing. The wrong beleif system will lead you and i into a place of not understanding how much you are loved , accepted and approved.
Rejection does that , it causes us to move away from the vary blessing God has for us because it makes us feel not wanted . Matter of fact it causes us to move away from the Father because the Lie says " He wont accept you " . Yet His word is His word , He is not a man that he should Lie , We are not Rejected but accepted into His family , we are sons and daughters of the King.
The key to walking in confidence and freedom is to operate out of the spirit of sonship.
The Holy Spirit Himself will bear witness that you are a child of God. The answer to the question, “What is the spirit of sonship?” can be summed up in Romans 8:17…
“and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…”
In other words, when you operate out of the spirit of sonship…
- You have the mind of Christ.
- You believe and expect God’s promises to be manifested in your life.
- You live according to the Spirit and not the flesh.
- You are confident in your God-given identity and purpose.
- You welcome God’s direction and discipline in your life.
- You serve the Lord because you know you are fully adopted and accepted.
- You receive favor and know you have every spiritual blessing.
