And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26.
One of the greatest desire of every father is to have children. He expects them to be greater and excel more than him in life. He provides for them needed education & exposure to excel. Man is God’s highest creation, the essence of his person. He made him carefully and wonderfully like himself; In his image and likeness.
Replica, offspring of God, sons and daughters; the highest honour.To be in charge, to reign and rule over things, situations and provide solutions. This is what sin robbed man; Sonship to Sinship.
Sin demotes, righteousness promotes; from the top, man became grounded. Sinship is the qualification for bondage, suffering, pain and disease. These are commonly associated with Sinship; signs and symptoms of the fall.
The best became the least, what a man? Sin became the nature of man at the fall; the status received at birth.Redemption is return to Sonship from Sinship; re-connection to the heritage of Sonship.
Sinship is obtained by natural birth, Sonship by the new birth. Sonship is not assumed, it is received. Just like every child has a birthday, we all have a date of new birth.
Salvation is the licence to dominion on earth. Sonship is not earned or achieved, it is the gift of God. You shall not lack the heritage of Sonship in your life. Whatever is due to Jesus, shall be your experience in life. Sonship is peculiar, not inferior; Jesus and you. May this be your new season of unlimited discovery in Christ.
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”John 1:12-13.
