GOD ANOINTS SONSHIP – ARE YOU A SON?
– 1 Samuel 16:11-13; Luke 3:21-22
Every time we gather as God’s people, God is looking for somebody to anoint; He is looking for the ‘anointable’ ones! Can God anoint you? Seven people were presented to Samuel and passed through the channel of the anointing. God was the Source, Samuel was the channel; and the Lord said He had refused them.
The first thing that God looks for and anoints is sonship. God does not look for titles, accomplishments, or brilliance; He looks for sonship. The question God asks as He goes around looking for ‘anointable’ materials is, “Are you a son?” When He sees a son, He puts the oil on him. He doesn’t put the anointing on any other person except a son.
For example, if someone goes to church as a new member and he’s a gifted musician but does not want to become a part of the structure there, then he is not a son. The advantage of being a son in any church you find yourself is that when you get anywhere, you will key into sonship and become a blessing there.
The kingdom of God is a kingdom of father and son. God is the Father of the family and what He is looking for is sonship. Dathan, Korah and Abiram qualified themselves by their self-chosen process but God said He had not chosen them; He had not called them His sons. Jesus, our example, who carried the anointing without measure, came as a son – the son of the Father.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to be sonship compliant, I will be takeable, bindable, and sendable, so help me God. Amen.
