So live, so act, you sons of God, that the world may say of you--"Yes, these men bring forth the fruits of God; they are like their Father; they honor His Name; they are indeed filled with His grace; for their every word is as true as His oath; their every act is sincere and upright; their heart is kind; their spirit is gentle; they are firm but they are generous; they are strict in their integrity, but they are loving in their souls; they are men who, like God, are full of love; but like Him are severely just. They are sternnly holy; they are, like Him, ready to forgive; but they can by no means tolerate iniquity, nor bear that sin should live in their presence." C.H. SPURGEON

Reply to sojourner7Thanks for a very uplifting post and a subject that has been on my mind. Something that I have only recently given any thought to. John 1 11. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12. 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: 13. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.Before the death burial and resurrection of our Lord, John said that men were given the power to become sons of God. After The Holy Spirit was poured out and they was converted, John wrote: Beloved, now are we the sons of GodEddie
What a priveledge and such a responsibilityto live up to our high calling!!
