It seems like many are reflecting a non kingdom church culture rather than owning their own belief, encounters, and reality as the sons of God. People amen when we talk about becoming what the earth is longing for, but their language and praying sound more like begging than ruling.
Stepping into Sonship is stepping away from a mentality that says my acceptance is measured by my performance.
Stepping into Sonship is stepping away from a mentality that says my acceptance is measured by my performance. A son realizes that we are partners with God on the inside. Holy Spirit is here inside of us to partner with our hearts in a process of seeing redemption swallow the earth. The gospel of the kingdom is a reality that God’s help and rulership is here on the earth and ready to partner with the sons of God to see life as we know it transformed.
Holy Spirit is asking us to become what the earth is longing for.
In our generation, I feel like a revolution is stirring like no other. Where the tradition, language, and the beliefs of our predecessors were accepted as truth, we are now seeing an entire generation going after the heart of God for themselves. They are not settled on being an echo, but becoming a voice of truth and encounter in the earth. This voice is a sound that Holy Spirit is birthing in the earth. It’s so fresh that it is releasing an authority like never before. This authority is being manifested in a realization that Holy Spirit is asking us to become what the earth is longing for. The church is longing for the return of Christ, but the earth is longing for US! What is it they want to see? They want to see God’s people so infused with Him that our heart and nature is undeniable. They want to see real answers to the biggest problems in the earth. They want to see healthy family and a premium value placed on love. I think they are longing for us to be the most authentic God people the world has ever seen. In fact, the world’s desire for authenticity may be stronger than our own desire for it in the church.
People are longing for us to be the most authentic God people the world has ever seen.
Stepping into sonship means that we are awakening to the reality that we are here to steward the earth until it becomes everything that our Father intended for it to be. We have to look through the lens of heaven and see the earth as something that God is not throwing away, but something that He is redeeming back to Himself. What is your greatest hope, an escape plan or a mission to flood the earth with light until it looks like heaven?
