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 Father “laid down the law” did you obey those laws? Jesus did you know. If you haven’t – why haven’t you? Is it because you were taught you couldn’t and that is why He sent Jesus? Not true!
God sent his Son Jesus to show us we could do it! Jesus walked this earth as a human! It can be done – it is a matter of choice! It is all about wanting 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 our Father God! Why? because you love him? It is also 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, like Jesus did! 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! It is a matter of loving God with all your heart and all your soul – it is a matter of obeying the first commandment.
For it is written:
“You shall have no other God’s before me.” Exodus 20:3
So, are you a child of God? Does your life show it? Or as they say, “Is there any evidence proving you are a child of God? I’m not talking about wearing a tee shirt with something about Jesus on the front – nor am I talking about wearing a cross around your neck. I’m talking about showing through your actions and how you live your life each moment of the day. What do your actions tell about you? Your opinion doesn’t count. Have you ever thought about what God’s opinion is?
Think about it!
