Romans 8:29 “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”
Jesus walked this earth, revealing to the whole of mankind what it means to have full fellowship with the Father. He displayed no special power or characteristic that is beyond the reach of any New Creation believer in Christ today.
Every New Creation in Christ Jesus has been begotten of God, and we are to be conformed to the image of Christ, since He is the first born, the first begotten of the dead. Oh! Indeed “what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1) It is extreme to the common mind to think that one is called a child of God, and has a status of sonship.
This is who we are in Christ Jesus, complete, He is the head and we are the body;
* The limits to our sanctification are as far reaching as Christ Himself (1 Corinthians 6:11)
* The limits to our right standing with the Father are no less than Christ’s for we are clothed with His righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21)
* The limits to our wisdom stop at His wisdom for we have His mind (1 Corinthians 2:16)
* The limits to our supernatural abilities stop at the limits to the power He possessed (John 14:12, 13)
The list goes on and on, in Him we are complete, by fellowship with His Spirit we are sons, who have joint sitting with Him.
Don’t be like the elder brother in the Parable of the Lost Son who cringed at the celebration of his brother’s return, his father’s response is God’s heart cry towards his children today, He says “Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.” (Luke 15:31) Wow! What a thought, that behind everyone who is a son of God through faith in Christ Jesus are the resources of Heaven, a son has the wealth of the eternities, and the backing of the entire godhead!
