THE YOKE OF THE LIVING SONS OF GOD

All that we have said about the sons of God are for only those who can believe them. As they believe, they begin to experience the extra ordinary life of the sons of God.

This life is not different from that of Jesus Christ, which he lived when he came to the world. He revealed that he was gentle and humble in heart. Mat 11:29-30. His life has been declared ‘unusual’ by his contemporaries. Today the whole world accepts that he has affected the history of this world positively more than anyone else.

How easy will it be for those who believe to lead this Christ-like life? They are yoked together with him. A yoke is usually used on farm animals that are made to work the land. Because of the instruments, like plough, attached to them, these animals must move in unison. The yoke is used to achieve this united movement.

When the leading animal turns in a particular direction, the yoke which has held it together with others, will draw them all along that same direction. This same yoke is what Jesus said must connect the living sons of God to him, so that where he turns, they will also turn. He will lead and they will follow.

This ‘yoking’ together begins from the thought-life of a son of God. For you to live the life of Christ, you need to think his thoughts. His thoughts are different from that of the people of this world. Isa 55:7-9.

When you reject the way people of this world and accept the way of thinking of Christ, you have started on the path of the glorious, extra-ordinary life of the son of God. From that time, you will receive his leading. Rom 12:1-2. Obeying the leading of the holy spirit means you are living as the son of God.

Are you yoked with the son of God? Do you live the life of the son of God? Is it easy to live like Christ in today’s world? Will it not look odd to live Christ life in today’s world? Let me know your opinion. God bless you.

THE FREE GIFTS OF THE SONS OF GOD

We have seen that God’s nature is shared by his sons. There are so many free gifts and inheritance meant for sons. No father will bequeath his inheritance to servants or slaves while his sons are living.

God has his inheritance for his children also. From the eldest son, Jesus Christ, to those who have believed his story to become sons of God, he has free gifts. They have to validate their sonship by conforming to the nature of their father through obedience to him.

Listed below are some of these gifts bestowed on the sons of God, as seen in the life Jesus:-

1. They are no more sinners although they may mistakenly sin. 1 John 3:9. They are forgiven if they repent.

2. They are led by the spirit of God and not by the devil and his sins. Rom 8:9-14.

3. They are worshiped by angels and do not worship angels. Heb. 1:6.

4. The sons of God are enthroned and reign with him. Eph. 2:6.

5. The devil and his cohorts are under their feet. They are not to cringe under his lies. Heb. 1:13.

6. They may call for anything from their father’s store house. Mat 7:7.

7. They are filled with God’s love to please and stand for him anywhere and at anytime. Rom 5:5.

These are some of the blessings of sonship. Do you believe these? Please send in your comments. God bless you.
