 9 Privileges of Being a Son of God

I. Son of God Receives Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9)

One of the most remarkable privileges of being a child of God is receiving the Holy Spirit. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us. The Spirit guides, comforts, and empowers us to live a life that honors God. This divine presence within us assures us of our identity as children of God and grants us access to God's wisdom and strength in every situation.

II. Son of God Receives Spirit of Adoption (Romans 8:14-15)

As children of God, we are not just servants, but we are adopted into God's family. The Spirit of adoption testifies that we are God's sons and daughters, co-heirs with Christ Himself. Through adoption, we have received all the privileges and rights of a true heir. This truth transforms our relationship with God, filling us with a sense of belonging and security in His love.

III. Son of God, the Spirit Bears Witness with Our Spirit (Romans 8:16)

The Spirit within us testifies to our true identity as children of God. His witness resonates with our spirit, confirming that we are beloved sons and daughters of the Most High. This inner assurance brings us peace, confidence, and the strength to face life's challenges with boldness.

IV. Son of God to be Joint-Heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17)

As children of God, we are not only heirs, but joint-heirs with Christ Himself. This means that we share in the inheritance of God's kingdom with Jesus. We are co-partakers of His glory and blessings. The privilege of being joint-heirs with Christ reminds us of the immense value God places on each one of us and the depth of His love for us.

V. Son of God Lives in Hope (Romans 8:24)

The hope of glory sustains us in our journey as children of God. We have the assurance that our present sufferings are nothing compared to the future glory that awaits us. This hope empowers us to endure trials, overcome challenges, and live with confidence in God's promises.

VI. Son of God the Spirit Aids Us in Our Prayers (Romans 8:26-27)

One of the remarkable privileges of being a child of God is the Holy Spirit's aid in our prayers. When we are unsure of how to pray or express our needs, the Spirit intercedes on our behalf. He communicates our deepest desires to God, aligning our prayers with God's perfect will. This comforting truth assures us that our prayers are heard and understood, even when we cannot find the words ourselves.

VII. Son of God Be Freedom from Condemnation (Romans 8:28, 33-34)

As children of God, we are set free from condemnation through Christ Jesus. The assurance that God works all things together for our good provides us with hope and confidence, even in the midst of trials. Our sins are forgiven, and there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. Christ's sacrifice on the cross has justified us, and nothing can separate us from God's love.

VIII. Son of God Has Unfailing Love of Christ (Romans 8:35)

The love of Christ for His children is unfailing and unwavering. In times of hardship and persecution, His love sustains us. As Paul writes in Romans, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?" Neither trials, tribulations, nor any circumstance can diminish the love of our Savior. His love is constant and enduring, offering us comfort and strength in every season of life.
