The Disciples’ Prayer Series – Part 2
The devoted have repeated this word in their prayers for centuries. Jesus modeled the use of this word when teaching us how to pray in scripture. Why? I think it is of utmost importance to understand in-depth what it means for God to be our Father–and us to be His sons–from the rest of scripture.
In the teaching attached to the top of this entry we look into what the scripture explains about God our Father. We’ll look at why we are sons, and how we are made into sons. We answer the question, “Are we sons like Jesus is the Son of God?”
The teaching also explains what the benefits are for us to be sons of God, and they are amazing. Among other things, this teaching also seeks to explain how our relationship with God the Father is defined in His acceptance and discipline, as well as presents an answer to the often-asked question, “If we are sons, then are we still servants?”
As a side note, being a Son of God is a spiritual position, and has nothing to do with physical gender. Women believers are Sons of God in the same way that men believers are the Bride of Christ. Both of these terms indicate spiritual truths about our position in God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ.
For those of you who like to download or stream the audio of these lessons, unfortunately there were technical difficulties that prevented this lesson from being recorded when I taught it at my church. I will update audio if I’m able to get it recorded at some point in the future.
