Love-shaped tree

I want to share with us today a discussion at a meeting with my pastor, Rev. Sam Adeyemi some years ago. The meeting was about God’s love…

1stJohn 3:1 says Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God. This shows that as a result of God’s love for us, he has changed our status. He made it possible for us to be called His children. That changes everything. As a human being, I am now a child of the living God.

Sin has always been our greatest problem. When sin came into the world (during the time of Adam and Eve), man lost his confidence to stand before God. Unfortunately, every human being inherited this liability called low self-esteem. To now have this experience where I become aware of God’s love to me, of the price that His son paid on the cross and to respond to that love by receiving forgiveness from God, and then now knowing that makes it possible for me to called a child of God…That is simply MIND BLOWING. I am no longer an ordinary person. I have access to resources beyond the capacity of an ordinary person. 

Being a child of God is the highest degree of status change, however, we need to understand the implications of being His child. In John 10:30 - 33, Jesus said, “I and My Father are one.” Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?”
The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.” 

Immediately Jesus made the above statement, all hell broke loose. If He had referred to Joseph, the husband of Mary, as His father, they wouldn’t have had any problem with that. For them to accept that God was His father is to accept that he was in the same class with God. That was what they had a problem with. 

The Spirit of God has removed the sin nature from our system and planted God’s nature on our inside. When you are a child of a being, you are in the same class with that being. Just like the child of a monkey is a monkey, and the child of a human being is a human, it also follows that the child of God is a god. Now, this statement is kind of controversial, that is why the Jews had a problem with Jesus’ statement in John chapter 10. But, the reality of this statement is that when we know that we carry God’s nature and walk in this reality, it changes everything. 

1stJohn 3:8-9 [Amplified], [But] he who commits sin [who practices evildoing] is of the devil [takes his character from the evil one], for the devil has sinned (violated the divine law) from the beginning. The reason the Son of God was made manifest (visible) was to undo (destroy, loosen, and dissolve) the works the devil [has done].
No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.

That nature we now have takes us beyond the limit of human ability. John chapter 3 verse 8 in the amplified version explains it better; The wind blows (breathes) where it wills; and though you hear its sound, yet you neither know where it comes from nor where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.When someone is born by God, power, wisdom and grace begin to work in the person’s life. You start to see results that cannot be explained because what the person is accomplishing is beyond the comprehension of human ability. 

When God’s love came, all the things that could limit us lost their power over our lives. 1stJohn 5:4 says, For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. We should be celebrating status-change. Our only liability is our thinking. We have to stop defining ourselves by human parameters. When, people called Jesus the son of joseph, He called himself the son of God. If you do not know me, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t know who I am. 

Declare with me today…I KNOW WHO I AM.
