SONSHIP... The Goal! by Rexkennedy Saltlove

"But I say that so long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a bondservant, though he is lord of all" - Galatians 4:1
The Christian faith is the most interesting and challenging in man-to-God, God-to-man relationship. It evolves and grows.
Accepting Jesus Christ as your saviour and lord does not AUTOMATICALLY, confer on any Christian the sonship status. It ONLY gives you the Power to become the child of God. - John 1:12 and this the Spirit of God can testify to:
Romans 8:16
Children have their nuances, and God expect you to exhibit them, but does not want you to remain there.
"When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things." 1 Cor.13:11
Some characteristics of childishness are:
"Desire the 'milk' (ABC) of God's word" - 1 Peter 2:2
"Being tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrines" - Eph.4:14
"Unskilled in biblical understanding and interpretations" - Heb. 5:13
As long as we remain in this states we can never enjoy the full benefits of Christian relationship in Christ Jesus. God wants us to grow up and be sons.
Natures of Sons:

"Though he was a son, he learnt obedience by the things he suffered" Heb. 5:8
"We are 'co-heirs' or 'joint-heirs' by our suffering with him - Romans 8:17
"Sons are given" - Isaiah 9:6. The reason is because they are gotten through processes of "sufferings". They are not produce by having ability to quote biblical verses or how long I have being a Christian stuff.
They are given or presented (shown) to the world for passing through the process y.
"THIS IS my beloved son" Matthew 3:17; 17:5
Sons are entrusted with Governance ability to enforce God's will on earth.
"The government shall be upon his shoulders" Isaiah 9:6
Sons have COMMANDING powers:
"IF you are the son of God, COMMAND..." Matt.4:3; Luke 4:3
Sons don't tempt fate in God's house and presence:
"IF you are the son of God, jump down from here" - Matt. 4:5-7
Sons do not look for shortcut to fame, glory, wealth and popularity:
"IF you are the son of God, bow and I will give you all the glory of the world" - Matthew 4:8-9
In summary, sons don't take suggestions and instructions from the enemy's camp or mouth.
Sons are produced through sufferings and "ye have not yet resisted temptation (sin) to the shedding of blood"
