Galatians 4:1 (KJV) Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all.
You are a child of God because God is your father and He is responsible for you. You become His son however because you can represent him and are responsible to Him.
Children are born while sons are given (Isaiah 9:6 and John 3:16). To be born again is good since it is the beginning of your walk with the Father, however, it is better that you grow into a son and best that you keep growing. You are a son when your Father can give or send you to a person, a group, or a nation to represent Him.
Growing into a son requires that you receive the life and wisdom of your father, and by reason of these become like your father, such that whosoever sees you will see your father through you.
You are not the one to declare yourself a son, that is the Father’s to do (Galatians 4:2 and Romans 1:4). However, you can know that you are growing out of childhood into sonhood (maturity) by measuring how much of you has been totally given to God. The extent to which you have given yourself to God is the extent to which He can give you as an answer to the problem of others.
Pray this way: Father, I commit myself to learning and obeying your word and growing into sonship. Help me Lord to do this, in Jesus name. Amen.
