The subject of this Blog refers the power of God that comes into our hearts through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. This effectual power comes from above. It's a power that literally makes the believer a son of God. This power is the same power that raised Christ from the grave
John 1:12-13...But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
This power I write about is a power that makes an unholy man..."holy". It's a power that converts the human will from a state of rebellion and disobedience; to state of subjection to Christ and obedience to God. The reason the human will is changed is because the Grace of God gives the son of God power to do right. Power to do right is a God given to the heart of man. This power gives the believer...the ability to do the will of God. Why? A son of God has a clean heart because he's born of the Spirit of God.
John 1:13...Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
This soul is saved by the Grace of God. The believer has new actions. He has new behavior and conduct. He has a new make-up and character. His choices are different! His decisions or different! Why? The soul is the part of man that chooses and decides. The soul has been redeemed, regenerated, and is now clean! The Bible teaches that souls are saved and justified.
Heb 10:38-39...Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
The Grace of God morally changes the inner being of man. The will is effected! The soul is effected! The mind is effected! A son of God experiences the power of God's Grace. A son of God can deny ungodliness an live sober, right and godly. Titus 2:11-14 His choices are to live holy and right. He chooses not of sin because he has power to do right. Sin is not essential in the heart of a son of God. The soul is saved
All filthiness and dirty living can be laid aside according to James.
James 1:21...Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
A saved soul is a soul that chooses not to sin. A saved soul is a soul that has decided not to do wrong anymore. Salvation is power and redemption. A new creature is a creature that desires to stop practicing sin. Sin doesn't control a son of God's choices and decisions. Why? Son's of God are born of the Spirit of God. They are created by Christ. Son's of God are the workmanship if Christ.
Prove you are a son of God... by bringing honor to Christ who saved your soul! Do the will of God! Live by Grace...not disgrace. There's power in the new birth. That power is the power to be a son of God! Son's of God choose right instead of wrong. Why? Righteousness is also a product of God's Grace. Glorify Christ in your body and Spirit. Your a son of God! Glory!
