Summary: This sermon helps believers analyze whether they are only servants of GOD or have they started living as Children of GOD!
“Are You A Servant Or A Son??”
servant - one that must work for another and obey him:
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
son - a male who assumes the role or status of the offspring of human parents (as an adopted child or son-in-law)
III. “The Son!!!”
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:
IV. Sons of GOD!!!
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
