2 Corinthians 6:17-18 (NET) Therefore “come out from their midst, and be separate,” says the Lord, “and touch no unclean thing, and I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters,” says the All-Powerful Lord.
Daniele was confused because she did not understand why God treated Helen better than her. She had observed, documented, and come to the conclusion that God had favorites and might be a little partial. But she couldn’t be more wrong.
Unlike her, when Helen gave her life to Christ, she gave it fully. She was submitted to discipleship and when her discipler advised her to separate from her worldly friends, she did so because she wanted to be sanctified unto the Lord alone. Because of this, she grew and started to practically enjoy the fatherhood of God and know the voice of the Lord.
Daniele, on the other hand, remained a baby Christian who wanted the best of both worlds. She wanted to belong to Jesus but didn’t want to miss out on the world. Because of this lack of separation and sanctification, she could not enjoy the fatherhood of God. She knew this because she saw the privileges Helen enjoyed through her robust relationship with her heavenly Father.
Scripture does not say those who believe are automatically sons of God, it says God gives them the power to become sons of God (see John 1:12). This power helps us to separate ourselves from the world and be sanctified unto God.
As revealed in today’s Bible verse, God’s fatherhood will only be experienced by those who separate themselves from the world.
Go into today remembering that you can actually walk in the sonship of God. The key to this is separation unto sanctification.
Prayer: Lord, please help me separate myself from the world and enjoy the fatherhood of God.
