SONSHIP IN CHRISTSeptember 4, 2019
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!‚ÄĚ¬†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.
