Hebrews (Program #67) – The Completion of Sonship

Salvation is God’s promise to man by believing faith. But, is salvation God’s goal for man? Or, is rather a process for the accomplishment of God’s goal? God’s goal of sonship is our topic today on the life study of the Bible.

On one hand, at the moment we receive the redeeming Christ as our Savior, we become sons of God. But in another sense, the process of sonship has just begun. How do we know from the Scripture that sonship can properly be described as a process?

Hebrews (Program #66) – Living According to the Law of Life and Moving According to the Anointing

Today, we will see in the book of Hebrews the crucial need of Christians today is not more teaching from the Bible, neither is it more power in the miraculous realm. The crucial need of Christians today is to know Christ in an inward way, to live Him, and to become the sons of God.

Hebrews and Romans make clear that God’s intention is to have genuine sons from among men. But, God is a divine being while we are merely human beings. This presents a major obstacle to the accomplishment of God’s purpose. The inner working of the divine life within us is our focus of today’s life study of the Bible.

But, this thought is not just common between these two great books of the new testament; it’s a central thought of the entire divine revelation. Simply, this is God’s great desire and plan for us. It will also be our focus on today’s life study of the Bible.
