For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26 (NLT)
The issue of our identity is a forever settled subject. We should no longer be uncertain, asking about our origin. Man is not a product of evolution. The human race did not start out from primordial soup neither did we evolve from apes.
God is our Father. We are offspring of Deity; we spring forth from the Most High God-Acts 17:28. We are sons and daughters of Almighty God, born from above.
James 1:18(AMPC) And it was of His own [free] will that He gave us birth [as sons] by [His] Word of Truth, so that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures [a sample of what He created to be consecrated to Himself].
When identity is settled, purpose is established. Being children of God, we have His nature in us. We have the life of God in us. Everyone one of us who believes in Jesus Christ the Son of God has divine life – 1 John 5:11-13.
Therefore, we don’t have to be asking to be made more like Him – “oh Lord change me, make me more like you” We are already like Him. 1 John 5:17 As He is so are we in this world right now. What we need is to know Him more, deeper, intimately. The Apostle Paul’s prayer was that he may know God-Philippians 3:10.
A human baby or child is a hundred percent a human being, as much as an adult. Yes, he will grow in stature and understanding and functioning as a human but not in human nature or quality of being a human. Naturally physically we grow through being fed and watching our parents or the adults. Similarly, as children of God we grow spiritually through being nourished on the Word of God and watching our Father.
The Holy Spirit dwells in every child of God and He always confirms and affirms to us our sonship. He assures us in our hearts that we are children of God-Romans 8:15, 16.
Now since we are God’s children it follows that we are heirs of God-Galatians 4:7.
We have an inheritance who’s God Himself. Psalms 16:5 (NLT) LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.
As God’s child all that God is and has belongs to you. His life, peace, love, joy, power, light and blessings are all yours. All you need to do is to believe.
