“The Power of Sonship”

Key Verse

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” (John 1:12).

Text — John 1:10-12


The value of every soul created by God cannot be measured or quantified with any human or material resources. Hence,  God made a clarion call more than 2000 years ago – a call to salvage humanity from permanent eternal damnation to eternal peaceful rest. Our text reveals the opportunity God gives to mankind, including children and teenagers, to confer on them the power of sonship and membership of His kingdom which grants all the privilege to enjoy divine blessings. Remember, God was ready to kill the first born of Pharaoh if he refused to let Israel go free out of Egypt (Exodus 4:22-23). God has stretched out His hands to receive sinners and backslidders who are willing to accept His offer of sonship through genuine repentance. Becoming God’s son gives you protection, provision and other privileges.

Therefore, to receive the power of sonship of God, you must turn away from your sin. The condition for remaining a son in the kingdom and spending eternity with the Father is to daily live a life dedicated to God and His will.


Live a life dedicated to God


Dare to be a child of God.

Prayer for today

Oh God, I receive Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. Amen.
