Praise God for the wonderful relation He has called us to be in....not as a slave, not as a servant, not as a devotee, rather a son and a daughter.
" Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner." John 5:19 (NKJV)
Jesus represented all of us while on this earth and even on the cross and thus now we should represent Him on his earth and live a life Jesus like.
A servant seldom becomes likes his master and thus the only look alike and character relationship is that of a Father and a child and thus has God called us to.
I as a father often find my children imitating me and often do we see our own behaviour in them, so does God desire from us.
This is how God has called us....
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name" John 1:12 (NKJV)
This is how the Holy Spirit wants us to be....
".... But we have the mind of Christ." 1 Corinthians 2:16 (NKJV)
Dear One!! We have to be like Father, a son like Him, a daughter like Him.
As we survey the world around us, do we see this? Most assuredly No, for Christ would never have done the things we are doing today, why are we then doing this? why are we not like our Father?
have we not received the right to become children of God? probably not, for it is only for them who have received Him into their lives as Lord and Savior and thus now as many do not know Him, how can they receive Him and thus how can they be like Him?
God created us in His own image and likeness and as we have now departed much away from it, we have to return to be like how we were created, to be more like Him, to be like our Father.
