the greatest wonder in the universe – man can be born of God and sinners can be made sons of God!


WOW! I love this wonderful delicious amazing and true quote from bro. Lee

Surely it is the greatest wonder in the universe that human beings could be begotten of God and sinners could be made children of God.

How can this be? What is this? We, human beings, to be born of God? Even us, the sinners, to become sons of God? YES! This is what the Bible says, and this is our reality & our experience! When we receive the Lord Jesus at the time of our regeneration, we are born of God! Just like John 1:12-13 says

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of God, to those who believe into His name, who were begotten not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

As many as believe in the Lord, that is, receive Him as Lord by calling on His name to be saved(Acts 2:21), they are being given the right, the authority, and the priviledge to be called sons of God, children of God! At the moment of our regeneration, we were born of God – we received another life! We have been begotten of the Father, who is the source of life, to be the children of God. Surely this is the greatest wonder in the whole universe! Through such an amazing divine birth we received the divine life – this life enables us to be God’s children; this life is the authority for us to be children of God(John 1:12-13)!

Even more, Romans 8:16 says:

The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God.

There is a Person in us, Christ as the Spirit, who witness not FOR us but WITH our spirit(whenever the Spirit witnesses, our spirit witnesses too; whenever we take the lead to witness that we are children of God, the Spirit witnesses with us)! Even when at times we’re weak or maybe backsliding or we do things to offend the Lord – deep within, once we are born of God, we have the deep conviction that we are children of God! Once we were born of God, we can never be un-born! We are forever Children Of God! And we have within us the divine life of God which is all-inclusive – it includes all that God is, His divine nature, His divine characteristics, His divine attributes, all the process Christ went through(incarnation, the perfect human living, His wonderful resurrection, His ascension, His enthronement, etc) – all the fullness of God is in this life that is now in us, growing day by day! We are growing daily to be Sons of God(led by the Spirit, Rom. 8:14) and eventually heirs of God with Christ(Rom. 8:17)!

One very sweet aspect of being a child of God, however initial it is in our Christian life, is that we can call God as our “Abba Father” – Dear Daddy! God is our Father, and we love Him! He has begotten us of Himself, and He poured out His love into our hearts… because we have now been born of God and are related to Him in life, it is so normal and also sweet to call Him Father. O, Father! Abba Father, we love You! Thank You Father for Your divine life in us…. Thank You we are children of God, being transformed daily to be sons of God, and eventually we will become heirs of God!
