Fellowship, Sonship, and Trust

 

What did Jesus say of the one who loves Him?

“Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.” John 14:21.

 

Into what relationship does God’s love bring us?

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God? And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1.

 

As sons of God, to what will we submit? How may we know that we are the sons of God?

 

“Because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry “Abba, Father. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.” Romans 8:14-16.

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-6. (See Titus 3:5,6.)

The Lord has appeared to us from the past, saying, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3.

 

Can anything separate the true child of God from the love of God?

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present or the future, nor any powers, neither height or depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 

Romans 8:38,39.

 

Unto whom will the saints forever ascribe praise?

“And for Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and father – to him be glory and power forever and ever! Amen.  Revelation 1:5,6.

 

He Made All These

God made the sea, the sky, the granite hills;

He hung the stars and planets in their place.

His hand designed the wrens and whippoorwills

As well as dainty snowflakes trimmed in lace.

 

“Tis He who formed the tulip and the rose,

Who painted leaves in autumn, red and gold;

Our God sustains the lonely flower that grows

In desert wastes through heat and bitter cold.

 

He brought the smile that plays on baby’s face,

And formed the hands, so tender and so true,

Of one who comforts in life’s solemn race.

God made all these to show Himself to you.

 

But here’s another thing that’s greater yet:

A new heart – pure and sinless as a dove,

Like Christ’s – He will create in all who’ll let

Him prove the wondrous scripture: “God is love.”

                                                      - James Joiner.
