Sons of God




"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.

Hi Priya,
You are so right my young friend. We can become righteous without being obnoxious to others, especially unbelievers, by saying nothing but instead showing them by deeds our righteous acts for God. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Nice post Sir mel, thanks for sharing it again.
Ang mga anak ko Sir mel wala pang binyag, yan ang hirap pag nandito sa ibang bansa, its not easy to arrange things kasi I have to let my husband takes care of everything. Tapos always busy pa siya, at hindi rin siya catholic. Kung nasa pinas lang sana ako, matagal na ito nabinyagan.
Thanks for the post.

Hi Shy,
Alam mo Shy it does not matter kung hindi pa nabinygan ang mga anak mo sa Catholic church at hindi rin Catholic ang asawa mo. Wala sa relihiyon ang kaligtasan. Iyon ay nasa tamang relasyon kay Jesus Christ. Magbasa ka ng Bibliya araw araw para lumalim ka sa salita ng Diyos at duon mo malalaman ang mga bagay na dapat mong gawin dahil duon mangungusap ang Diyos sa iyo. Sa panalangin mo naman Siya makakausap at maipapasa sa Kanya ang lahat mong kabigatan sa buhay. Ipinapanalangin kita palagi na nawa'y liwanagan ng Panginoon ang iyong puso at matukyan mo ang landas patungo sa Kanyang kaharian. Dahil sa inyo ni Kathy kaya ako nagpahayag nang mga personal kong impormasyon sa buhay para makilala ninyo ako at maging impluwensya ako sa inyong pagbabago. Maraming salamat sa dalaw. God bless you all always.

Hi Kathy,
Thanks sa dalaw mo at sa pagiging open minded mo. Kaya lang naman ako nakapag joke sa iyo ay palagay na kasi ang loob ko sa iyo maski kailan lang tayo nagkakilala sa blogging world. Ang una kong nakilala sa barkada ninyo ay si Rose (Chubskulit), tapos si Dhemz, si Manang Kim, si Bambie Dear, at si Shydub. Natutuwa ako sa inyong lahat dahil mga ulirang mommy kayong lahat and you make our country proud by being exemplary wives to your husbands. Tuwang tuwa ako pag nakakabasa ng mga anecdotes ng buong pamilya ninyo habang nagba bonding. Pag buo ang pamilya ay matatag ang buhay natin. Thanks sa dalaw at maunawaing pagkomento. God bless you all always.
