SERVING IN THE SPIRIT OF A SON (3)
– Philippians 2:6-11
In the last two days, our focus has been on serving in the spirit of a son. Remember, sonship is the heart of the Kingdom. Jesus didn’t come as God; He came as the son of the Father. He said, “I and my father are one,” but he also said that the Father is greater than Him.
Those who are married and have children are praying for the day that their sons will become true sons that they can discuss and share with, how to govern the family. God is looking for the day you will rise as a son. He was looking for a son in the house of Jesse, but David was the only one that had proved sonship to the father. David’s brothers didn’t want to do the work that was in the heart of the father, which was taking care of the sheep, but they were quick to bring themselves forward to be the next king just because they came from the chosen family line. When God was going to anoint the king, He anointed the one that was doing the sonship duties in the father’s house.
Saul became king because he obeyed the instructions of his father. He could have refused to go on that errand and asked his father to send the houseboy, but he went out as a son. He didn’t return from that errand as just a son; he came back as the king of the land. Sons don’t just hear a message in church, they receive the spirit; they receive the anointing. God is building sons. He anoints sonship.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to be a true son to my heavenly father and the kingdom father in Jesus name. Amen.
