Privileged Beyond... (Part 3) (1 John 3:1-2)Tommy Boring, November 6, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We have been made His children. To understand that we must go back to know where we've come from. Have you ever thought about the love of God that would cause Him to love us? What does it mean to live without God? Think about how it would be to grow up with no parent that loved you. What if you were a child of an earthly king? Think about an orphan child and how they want to be loved. They do not want toys or other earthly wants. They simply want parents that love them like their own. Gal 4:4-5 Only thru the blood of Jesus Christ is how one can be adopted by God. A Jew lives for their birthright tying to make sure they can be traced back to Abraham. Your linage will not get you to heaven or make you any closer to God. Many orphans of this world can't wait to be out on their own but, they always have it in the back of their mind that they were never loved. Romans 8:14-15 The adoption paperwork once signed is sealed and can never be changed. Gal 4:7; Rom 8:17 Not only do we have the Spirit to prove to us but we are heirs. Have you even considered where you were when He came to you and asked you to become His child? What could be the reason that God would adopt us? What's your purpose? Why are you here? Phil 2:13-15 The purpose is that we are to bare much fruit for Christ. We are to shine in this dark time that we live in. We've been called out from amongst the darkness and into the light.
