Spiritually Transformed Sons of God

When we are born we are not children of God, we are children of this earth and we need to become children of God in order to be able to go into the Kingdom of God. We read in John 1:12 “But as many as received Him (Jesus), to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.”
Flesh and blood, what we are, will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven but our spirit will enter Heaven if we have become Children of God, but we cannot perceive, understand, or see the Kingdom of God with our natural eyes, we need to be BORN AGAIN to become children of God. We read in John 3:3”Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” 5Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6“That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”
We need to be born again, we need to become spiritual people because if we are not born again we are of the flesh , we need to be of the Spirit of God so that we can communicate with God, then we can become children of God.
We read in Romans 8, Paul writes, he says that those who are in the flesh, people that live according to their mind, they cannot please God. Romans 8:8” and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.  9However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.” We read in verse 14:“For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”
We need to be born again of water and of Spirit. If we accept Jesus as Lord then He gives the new birth but we must repent, we must turn away from our earthly lifestyle and we must acquire a heavenly lifestyle being led by the Spirit of God. If we are not born again and receive the Spirit of God, then we cannot be spiritual people and we cannot be led by the Spirit of God. The only way that we can please God is if we are led by the Spirit. We need to come into a spiritual relationship with God. And therefore we need to be born of water and of Spirit. After you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and your Master, cried to Him and said:”Lord I want You to be my Master.” Then He comes into your life but you must OBEY HIM, you must be baptized in water so that you can be born of water, born again of water. He says if you are not born again of water and of Spirit you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. If you are baptized in water, He promised to give you the Holy Spirit, because if you don’t have the Spirit of Christ you do not belong to Him. And He gives you His Spirit who will guide you into all truth. We need to have that Spiritual rebirth in order to be a child of God, because then we are spiritually connected with God.
Jesus said to His disciples before He left, He said:”I do not leave you as orphans but I sent you the Comforter, the Holy Spirit who will be with you forever.” And that Holy Spirit was poured out on the day of Pentecost. Just after Jesus ascended to Heaven the Apostles were waiting for the Holy Spirit and it was poured out on the day of Pentecost. They received the Holy Spirit and from there onward they were led by the Holy Spirit. All those who follow Jesus must be led by the Holy Spirit. You cannot be led by your mind. You cannot serve God your way, the way that you think. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. How do you know what God wants you to do if you are not in communication with Him, if you do not hear Him? Jesus said: “My sheep listen to My voice and they follow Me.” You need the Holy Spirit to speak to you, to guide you every day. A child of God follows Jesus. Jesus said: “If you wish to follow Me, deny yourself, pick up your cross, come here and follow Me every day.” The only way that we can follow Him, is if we are led by the Holy Spirit.
You need the Holy Spirit. You need to be a spiritual person, born again of the Spirit of God so that you are in communication with God and as Paul said, if you do not have the Spirit of Christ you do not belong to Him. Repent, turn away from your earthly lifestyle, accept Jesus as your Master, obey Him, be baptized in water, He will give you the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Seek for it and then he will guide you by His Spirit and you will become a Son of God and then you must be led by the Holy Spirit. The Apostles were led by the Holy Spirit of God. The first believers were led by the Spirit of God because they had the Holy Spirit in them. Have you received the Holy Spirit since you believe in Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.
