Sons and Daughters of God Most High

In all our pressing into God, seeking greater revelation of His word and the excitement of growing in our relationship with Him it is important to be reminded sometimes of some of the foundations of our faith. Recently I was reminded that as Christians we are God’s “dear children” (Eph 5:1; NKJV). The apostle Paul quoted God as saying, “I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters (2 Cor 6:18; NKJV). In Galatians 3:26 we read that we “are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus” (NKJV). We have been adopted as God’s sons (Eph 1:5). Jesus is our brother (Heb 2:11), “the eldest in a vast family of brothers” (Rom 8:29; Wey). As God’s sons and daughters, He has “sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts crying, “Abba Father”” (Gal 4:6; NKJV). “Abba Father” is an intimate name for our Father God, like us calling Him daddy. In Eph 2:10, Paul tells us that God sees us as His “workmanship”. The Greek word translated “workmanship” can also mean work of art or poem. That’s how our Father sees each one of us. God’s sons and daughters are those who are led by the Holy Spirit (Rom 8:14), they are peacemakers (Luke 6:35), they walk in love and selflessly do good (Luke 6:35). The Bible promises us that those who walk a victorious Christian life will inherit all the blessings of eternal life as God’s “sons and daughters” (Rev 21:7; MSG). Sometimes we need to close our eyes and try to take in all it means to be sons and daughters of our heavenly Father, our heavenly daddy. Now that’s more than exciting!
