SONSHIP IN CHRIST

Daily Prayer for Sept 4th, 2019             

Good morning, Abba Father‚ÄĒthank You! ūüôā

Thanks to Jesus, I was made ‘fit’ to be Your adoptive child. I am spiritually adopted and redeemed. The promised inheritance is mine. And now that I have been born again, I am consciously and joyfully aware that You are my Father, and I am Your child. Your Spirit dwells within me. This intimate¬†sonship¬†is a remarkable relationship experience. I seek to serve You in every way! In Jesus name. Amen.¬† ¬†

Galatians 4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Sonship in Christ

4¬†Now I say, as long as the heir is a¬†child, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is¬†owner of everything,¬†2¬†but he is under guardians and¬†managers until the date set by the father.¬†3¬†So also we, while we were children, were held¬†in bondage under the¬†elemental things of the world.¬†4¬†But when¬†the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son,¬†born of a woman, born¬†under¬†the Law,¬†5¬†so that He might redeem those who were under¬†the Law, that we might receive the adoption as¬†sons.¬†6¬†Because you are sons,¬†God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, ‚ÄúAbba! Father!‚Ä̬†7¬†Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and¬†if a son, then an heir¬†through God.

8 However at that time, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods. 9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again? 10 You observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored over you in vain.

12¬†I beg of you,¬†brethren,¬†become as I¬†am, for I also¬†have become¬†as you¬†are. You have done me no wrong;¬†13¬†but you know that it was because of a¬†bodily illness that I preached the gospel to you the first time;¬†14¬†and that which was a¬†trial to you in my bodily condition you did not despise or loathe, but¬†you received me as an angel of God, as¬†Christ Jesus¬†Himself.¬†15¬†Where then is¬†that sense of blessing you had? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your eyes and given them to me.¬†16¬†So have I become your enemy¬†by telling you the truth?¬†17¬†They eagerly seek you, not commendably, but they wish to shut you out so that you will seek them.¬†18¬†But it is good always to be eagerly sought in a commendable¬†manner, and¬†not only when I am present with you.¬†19¬†My children, with whom¬†I am again in labor until¬†Christ is formed in you‚ÄĒ¬†20¬†but I could wish to be present with you now and to change my tone, for¬†I am perplexed about you.
