Are you a child of God? If so what kind of a child are you? Are you the kind of child that would make your Father proud of you? Are you the type of child who can be trusted? Are you the type of child that causes your Father embarrassment? Could your Father give you a list of chores to do and you would carry them out exactly the way He wanted you too? Are you the type of child that would want to please your Father in everything you do because you love him and respect him? Are you an obedient child? Or are you disobedient?
When your earthly Father “laid down the law” did you obey the rules/laws? Jesus did you know. If you have not - why haven’t you? Is it because you were taught you could not and that is why He sent Jesus? Not true! God sent his Son Jesus to show us we could do it, because He did it while walking the earth as a human. It can be done; it is a matter of choosing to be obedient! It is a matter of saying, “No, I won’t do that - it is wrong.” It is a matter of wanting to please your Father because you love him so much. It is a matter of putting His will before your wants and desires. It is a matter of respect for who He is. It is a matter of laying down your life, as did Jesus. It is a matter of “getting over yourself” and understanding that you are a created being – and you are not on this earth for your good pleasure, but for God’s good pleasure! It is a matter of loving God with all your heart and all your soul – it is a matter of obeying the first commandment.
“You shall have no other God’s before me.” Exodus 20:3 (NIV)
So, are you a child of God? Does your life show it? Or as they say, “Is there any evidence to prove it?” Your opinion does not count! How about from God’s opinion?
