Morning Message of Motivation

Christ our Redeemer: 2
Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

True sonship is seen in similar characteristics, deeds and nature with your father. Jesus said these Jews were manifesting the nature of their father.
John 8:41 NKJV
“You do the deeds of your father.”
Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father—God.”

The Jews argued that God was their father but Jesus disagreed.
John 8:42 NKJV
“Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me.”

One great indicator of possessing divine life is love for all of God’s children.
1 John 3:14 NKJV
“We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.”

These Jews who claimed to be God’s children hated Christ and were plotting to kill Him.
John 8:40 NKJV
“But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.”

Their actions and attitudes did not show the character of Abraham or God. They were acting like the children of a different father.
John 8:41a NKJV
“You do the deeds of your father.”

They still protested and claimed to be children of God. Jesus then told them plainly that their Father was the devil.
John 8:44a NKJV
“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning.”

Christ came to redeem mankind.
Ephesians 1:7a KJV
“In whom we have redemption;”

Christ is your Redeemer. You are redeemed by His precious blood. May you walk in total victory through Christ, in Jesus’ name.
