‘GRACE WAVES DEVOTIONAL’

Servant Or Son 1

GRACE WAVES DEVOTIONAL

Heb 3:5-6 Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are.

Under the Old Covenant of law, Moses was a servant in God’s house. A servant has no say in what they do; they are there to obey the commands of their master. They have to serve whether they like it or not!

Under the New Covenant of grace, Christ is a son over God’s house. He gets to say what goes on in the house because He is (so to speak) the inheritor of the family business; and as a son, Christ still serves, but He serves because He wants to not because He has to.

As sons of God, believers belong in the house. They share the inheritance of the family business. They still serve, but they serve because they want to, not because they have to.

There are many believers today who although they are sons, still have the mentality of servants. Why are they like this? They are still living under the law. They still see the Christian life as a performance

Their watchword is ‘obedience.’ They think they have to ratchet up the brownie points in order to earn God’s blessings

Let us of the grace community; pray that God will give them a revelation of sonship!

Meditation Point: We no longer serve as a slave, we serve as a son. We serve because we want to, not because we have to!

Phil 4:8 Meditate (think) on these things.
