Son of God
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Ephesians 1:4 (KJV)
The only thing better than being a friend of God is being a child of God. This, Beloved, is exactly what God the Father has done in and through Christ Jesus. Now I enthusiastically sing, “I am a son of God, I am a son of God, I am a son of God, He calls me son.” Glory!
The love of God manifest in and through Jesus was not an afterthought to God. He chose, eklegomai , choose out for Himself out of many those to be peculiarly His own. Now, you are a part of a chosen generation. You are “called, and chosen, and faithful.”
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. Revelation 17:14 (KJV)
As God’s own children, by His choice, we “should be holy and without blame before him in love.” We should, by our life-style and our words, reveal to the world what it means to be a child of God and joint-heirs with Christ.
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:17 (KJV)
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Galatians 4:6-7 (KJV)
