Christian Identity (Part 1): Sons and Daughters of God

WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN’S IDENTITY?

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Romans 8:14-17

If you believe the Gospel of Christ, you are a child of God [Galatians 3:27].

You are a son of God and therefore an heir of God [Romans 8:14-17, Galatians 4:7].

Since you are an heir of God, you have an inheritance from your Father God.

This inheritance in Christ [1 Corinthians 1:30] includes:

  • Forgiveness of sin by God [Colossians 1:12-14]
  • Being declared righteous by God (justification) [Romans 8:29-30]
  • Being made holy by God (sanctification) [Acts 26:18]

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

Ephesians 2:19

You are a member of household of God, which is the church [Ephesians 2:19, 1 Corinthians 12:27].

Therefore, your identity is a son or daughter of God and a member of the household of God.
