Jesus came to restore your sonship!
Son is a human race that aligns itself to the will of God!
God is your Daddy!
He brings you right into His immediate family!
“…Jesus came to restore you to your sonship. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus to function as sons of God. Son is a human race that aligns itself to the will of God. He is the firstborn in many brothers. You are the firstborn. You must come to the standard of God. That standard is Son of God. To get righteousness, you must first accept your sonship. If you accept sonship by revelation, there can be no sin in sonship. The Spirit of His Son is upon you. God wants everyone to be His Son. Jesus came to that standard by laying down His life, and submitting His will to His Father. On the cross, He realigned everything. He reconciled Son to Him, and God as Father to us. He took away the sins of the world. It is fundamental to understand that He is your Daddy. Through His actions, He restored your righteousness to become the righteousness of God in Him. Reconciliation is God bringing you into the most intimate relationship with Him. He brings you right into His immediate family…” – Dr. Ben Kleynhans
Romans 5:17-21 (NKJV)
17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ).
18 Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.
19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,
21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
2 February: The Doctrine of First Fruits, by Dr. Ben Kleynhans: “When you give the first, you secure the whole harvest for the rest of the year”.
Proverbs 3:8-10 (GNT)
8 If you do, it will be like good medicine, healing your wounds and easing your pains.
9 Honor the Lord by making him an offering from the best of all that your land produces.
10 If you do, your barns will be filled with grain, and you will have too much wine to store it all.
9 February: Righteousness, Part 3.2, by Dr. Ben Kleynhans: “When you accept Him, He pours His life into you and the compliance to the righteous standard. It is now your duty to live that life out”.
Romans 5:17-21 (GNT)
17 It is true that through the sin of one man death began to rule because of that one man. But how much greater is the result of what was done by the one man, Jesus Christ! All who receive God’s abundant grace and are freely put right with him will rule in life through Christ.
18 So then, as the one sin condemned all people, in the same way the one righteous act sets all people free and gives them life.
19 And just as all people were made sinners as the result of the disobedience of one man, in the same way they will all be put right with God as the result of the obedience of the one man.
20 Law was introduced in order to increase wrongdoing; but where sin increased, God’s grace increased much more.
21 So then, just as sin ruled by means of death, so also God’s grace rules by means of righteousness, leading us to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
16 February: Living and Loving Abundantly, by Ps. Charles van Onselen: “Be more vulnerable to His abundant love”.
Romans 5:5 (GNT)
5 This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit, who is God’s gift to us.
23 February: The Fruit of the Spirit, by Ps. Jan van Schalkwyk: “If we have faith to believe that the Word of God is true, we will have peace and joy”.
Isaiah 55:10 (GNT)
10 “My word is like the snow and the rain that come down from the sky to water the earth. They make the crops grow and provide seed for planting and food to eat.
