Daily SOAP: Sons of God

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Galatians 3.

Scripture

“For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.” –Galatians 3:26

Observation

All who have faith in Jesus are sons of God. There is not a hierarchy among God’s children.

Only those who have faith in Jesus are sons of God. The Bible does not teach that all are sons of God. Some are sons of the devil (Matthew 13:38, 1 John 3:10, John 8:44). A person becomes a child of God through faith in Jesus Christ (John 1:12-13, 1 John 3:1, Romans 8:14-16).

Application

Teach these important truths: 1) Honor all members of the body as sons/daughters of God. 2) Urge people to join the family of God. Inform them that they are not currently His children, but they can become part of His family.

Prayer

Father, thank you for making me part of Your family–for making me one of Your sons. I pray that I will honor each fellow believer as being a son as well. Help me evangelize and work diligently in Your heaven to bring others Your family through faith in Jesus Christ.

For His glory, I ask these things,
Amen.
