Winning Wisdom: Fearless As Sons


Topic: Fearless As Sons [Tuesday, 8th August 2017]

And so we should not be like cringing, fearful slaves, but we should behave like God’s very own children, adopted into the bosom of his family, and calling to him, “Father, Father.” Romans 8:15 TLB

There was a spectacular event that took place in Luke 13:32-35: Jesus was in Jerusalem, healing and casting devils while also preaching about the kingdom when some Pharisees came to Him, telling Him to leave Jerusalem, if not He will be killed by King Herod. This was supposed to put fear in the heart of Jesus, and make cringe into hiding. Herod was king, and earthly kings are supposed to be feared. But not Jesus! Jesus is the Son of the heavenly King, Creator of the earth where Herod presides over. Jesus cannot be cowed by such king.

Jesus answered in spectacular fashion: "go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected" (Luke 13:32). Jesus called him a fox with all boldness, and the death He was threatened with, He was ready to face. But He won't let a threat from a mere earthly king stop Him from doing the will of God and establishing His Kingdom. He said further, "nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem" (Luke 13:33). Wow! What a fearless man Jesus is!

We must take this cue from Jesus and be fearless like Him. Nothing must stop us from fulfilling God's purpose for our lives. We are sons and daughters of the Heavenly King, Who rules in the affairs of men. Only slaves can be afraid. We are not slaves, we are God's very own children, and we must behave as such. Live everyday with the boldness that the Spirit of adoption brings, for God has not given you the Spirit of fear, but of boldness (2 Timothy 1:7). Hallelujah!

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Father, thank You for adopting into Your family as Your son. I live face each day fearless, knowing that I am Your son. Nothing can cow me from doing Your will and living out the purpose You have created me for, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
