Revealing Sonship Pt.2

"God desires for His people to stop seeing church as a place they ATTEND, and start seeing it as a Family they belong to."

The only thing that can displace the Orphan Heart within us is...

  • experiencing the unconditional love of God

  • view God as a perfect Father

  • know we are loved and accepted as sons/daughters

Why did Jesus come to earth?

He came to...

  • preach the good news [Mk. 1:38]

  • save us from our sins [Mt. 1:21]

  • be our propitiation [1 Jn. 4:10]

  • destroy the works of the devil [1 Jn. 3:8]

  • triumph over the enemy [Col. 2:15]

  • give us abundant life [Jn. 10:10]

  • give us eternal life [Jn. 3:16]

  • give us an example to live by [1 Pet. 2:21]

  • to die on the cross for our sin [Jn. 12:27]

Hebrews 1:1-2 [NLT], Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. 2 And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son.

Prophet means; "one who lends his voice to another."

"God ultimately knew that He couldn't send a prophet to do a Son's job."  

Hebrews 1:3 [TPT], The Son is the dazzling radiance of God's splendor, the exact expression of God's true nature - his mirror image.

John 1:18 [AMP], [the unique Son] who is in the intimate presence of the Father, He has explained Him [and interpreted and revealed the awesome wonder of the Father].

Colossians 1:15 [NLT], Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.

John 14:7-9 [NKJV/TPT], "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him." 8 Philip spoke up, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will be all that we need!" 9 Jesus replied, "Philip, I've been with you all this time and you still don't know who I am?  How could you ask me to show you the Father, for anyone who has looked at me has seen the Father."

"Jesus came to a world full of orphans to reveal what we needed the most - the FATHER."  

John 6:38 [NLT], For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.

John 12:49-50 [NLT], I don't speak on my own authority.  The Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it. 50 And I know his commands lead to eternal life; so I say whatever the Father tells me to say."

John 5:19 [NLT], So Jesus explained, "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself.  He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does."
