Who's your Daddy? (part 2)

Who's your daddy?  If it is God, then you have the same power within you that raised Jesus from the dead!

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:4‬ ‭

What is the proof that you are a child of God and are saved?

“For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:13-14‬ ‭

The proof is that you life is changing. You are looking more like your daddy - God - on a daily basis.

Like father, like son.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
A chip off the old block.

If you are not becoming more like Jesus, you should be changing.  I didn't say you have stopped sinning.  I said you be in the process of changing.

“What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭6:1-2‬ ‭

The following passage should either scare the crap out of you or give you a great feeling of relief:

““Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:21-23‬ ‭

Which is it for you - fear or relief?  Have you trifled to live like Him this week?  When you failed, did you feel horribly, confess your failure, and try to change?  Did you talk to Him this morning?  Did you listen to what He said?

Does any of that describe you?
Since you became a Christian, has your life changed?  How has it changed?
Is the way you love your wife and kids, would you say that you are being led by the Spirit of Christ?
Is the way you honor and respect your husband, would you say that you are being led by the Spirit of God?
Is the way that you act at work, would you say that you are being led by the Spirit of Christ?
Is the way you respond to social media, would you say that you are being led by the Spirit of Christ?
Are the things you do in private,  would you say that you are being led by the Spirit of Christ?
Are you making progress?
Do you really have a relationship with God?
Who's your daddy?
