"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father."
(Romans 8:14-15 KJV)
When we are adopted into the family of Our Awesome God, we have certain responsibilities that are a must in order to feel comfortable and be accepted as the King's child. They include, at least, the following:
1) The children of the King should strive to live by the Words found in His Holy Bible (Luke 4:4).
2) The children of the King are led by the Holy Spirit and God's Bible (Romans 8:14).
3) The children of the King have access to God through prayers (Matthew 21:22)
4) The children of the King are adopted sons and heirs to God's kingdom (Romans 8:17).
When we are children of the King, we should act as such, think as Christians should and live as Our Awesome God would want us to live. Are you living like you belong to Jesus? I hope so. Are you passionate about what He is passionate about? Your life should be going the way our Lord would want it to. Is His purpose your purpose, are you letting Him lead your life? Prayer should be at least three times a day, but to be really involved with Our Awesome God you need to talk to Him and get to know Him well. He is your Father, your King!
We, as "heirs" and "adopted sons," need to know Him and His kingdom well. You can't direct others as Our Awesome God would want if you don't know what He wants and what His purpose is. You will direct a part of His kingdom in some manner, if you are a Christian. So learn all you can about Him. He has a purpose for your life on earth and part of it is to learn all about Him and His ways so that you can help Jesus Christ. This will be for eternity with Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord, there is always something new to learn and do.
Our church is a loving church that wants to help others to a better understanding of Our Awesome God and His love, mercy and grace for all of mankind. Join us at Living Word Baptist Church as we love others while preaching and teaching from our Holy Bible about God and His Son, Jesus Christ. Our church has a Bible Study at 9:30 AM on Sunday and Worship Service at 10:30 AM and then from 6:00 to 7:00 PM there is another Bible Study along with a children's program called AWANA which goes until 7:30 PM. We love visitors!
