Scripture: 1 John 3:4-8
At this stage the real question is, what is the purpose of the fullness of Christ in our life, and what will it look like? That is the goal? That is what we are to aim for as we receive these Sonship Gifts. 1 John 3:8 tells us what that purpose is. “Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” The purpose of Christ was to birth God’s fullness for you and I. That starts with the application of these Sonship Gifts which when fully pursued and embraced and owned can completely eradicate blame, shame and guilt. This path can bring us into the full adoption as sons so that we can move on to our inheritance and birth what God called us to do when He created us. Only God would make provision like that and He did. All that provision is in Christ. As we study this and receive it, it will unfold in us. We accept our Sonship to approach God as our own Dad! Accepting Sonship opens the door to a Father/Son/Daughter relationship of the highest and most awesome caliber with our Creator!
