Now that we have discussed what it means to be a good man, next I would like to talk about what it means to be a son of God. In my next series of posts I am going to break it all down and explain how to become a son of God. This first post, some of you may not like what I am saying but it is the truth. I am not judging anyone, just trying to open minds as usual.
No one is perfect, every single one of us have sinned one way or another. Even from our youngest ages we do it. Think about it, when you were a toddler sneaking cookies out of the cookie jar and mom caught you. You have the crumbs all over your face, and she asks if you have been eating cookies. You say no because you are afraid of getting in trouble, you just lied. We all sin and we all are not perfect. Every single one of us are sinners.
The Bible is our source to God’s word and how to save ourselves from spending eternity in hell. The Bible is one big love story of God loving us so much that he has done all he has to save his creation from our sins. He gave his son to save us from our evil ways. It is only through Jesus that we can be sons and daughters of God and save ourselves being condemned.
Matthew 16:24-25 Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
These verses mean that you must admit (take up his cross) to your sins and accept that Jesus is the only way to salvation. You have to let go of your own understanding and what you believe, and know that Jesus is the light. When you can do that, your eyes will be opened and you will see things in a whole new perspective. God loves us more than we can ever truly understand, and he has done all this to save us because he loves us. For me, that is something worth fighting for. The fight is against sin and the evil ways of the world we live in today.
John 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
What this verse means is that we do have a choice in what we believe or not believe. No one can make the choice for you besides you. You have to let go of what you believe and believe that Jesus is the way. Jesus is the only way to saving us and from not being condemned to hell for eternity. That is the beginning of becoming a son of God. God loves us and as a good parent, He has proven that. We have to do our part as His children and learn to be obedient to His word. Until next time, God bless you all!
