We are sons of God – Prayer for Lent #day 20. We have been made God’s child, we are to act like one and not as if we do not a powerful Father who is ready to fight for us.
Prayer for Today
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)
Most Christians do not know what they carry, the power they have, and the one backing that power. The day you decide to follow Christ, you have been made a child. Jesus said we are not be called servants anymore. The time of being a servant is gone, the transformation has occurred through Christ Jesus.
John 15:15 “ I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”
To be a servant means to be a slave and that is not what God wants for us. In another place in the scriptures, we were opened to the word of God that we have been made children. 1 John 3:2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”
Now that we are sons, why should be beaten down by the common situations of life when we have someone who can help us to solve all of these problems without leaving anyone behind. When you pray, why do you pray like you are begging or like you know your prayer will not be answered? You are children of God and you should talk to Him like our Father, He will respond to us as a Father. He doesn’t disappoint. We must let people know that we have a great God who loves us.
If we show this to the world, they will want to serve our God, they will want to have the feel of God being a Father.
