"You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus,
for all of you who were baptized into Christ have
clothed yourselves with Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male
nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed
and heirs according to the promise."
Galatians 3: 26-29
Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior and who have put their faith in Him are called sons of God. Those who were baptized into Christ and who have clothed themselves with Christ's righteousness and holiness are co-heirs with Him of the kingdom of God. This reinforces the promise in John 1:12 which says, "Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." Thus, when we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior and have surrendered our lives to Him, we became new creations in Christ and our former selves, steeped in weakness and sinfulness, have already passed away and have already been crucified with Christ at Calvary. We now assume our new identities as children and sons of God able to do righteous deeds through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, who has made the inner chamber of our hearts His very own sacred temple.
