Sons And Daughters of God
by Kim Brock
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
If God condemns us then we are not His children, he would put himself against us because condemnation is a word that expresses opposition. Since God loves us and does not oppose us because of the work of Christ (God/Man) on the Cross we are no longer condemned by our past present or future, we are sons and daughters of the Most High, *Highest* God of the Universe.
Romans 8:5-10 For they who are according to the flesh mind the things of flesh, but they who are according to the Spirit the things of the Spirit. (6) For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace (7) because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can it be. (8) So then they who are in the flesh cannot please God. (9) But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His. (10) And if Christ is in you, indeed the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
8 So then they who are in the flesh cannot please God. The reason why you cannot please God in the flesh is because your heart is set to fleshly things and those things take your mind and heart away from the things of God. Money, material items, drama, worries, sex or whatever contrary to God take you away from His thoughts, His lifestyle and you began to look inward or to others for validation and happiness.
The Spirit of God is identification that we are His. Our identification that God is our father and that we are his daughters or sons. People of the same nationality and birthing place usually recognize . I’ve seen it many times where two people from the same country, even though they are strangers will come together and talk, exchange information, etc. They recognize each other likewise the spirit of God in us will allow us to recognize that same spirit in others. They are our brothers and sisters, God is daddy and we look to him for guidance, affirmation and truth.
Happy New Year!
