The Dimension of Sonship

The Three Dimensions of Sonship

Introduction:

Greetings, beloved readers! Today, let’s delve into the profound revelations from the Word of God concerning our identity in Christ. The scriptures tell us that just as Jesus, where the Father was in Him and working through Him, so is the mandate for each one of us. Join me as we explore the call God has placed upon us and the significance of living a life aligned with the roles of Prophet, Priest, and King.

Jesus’ Mandate and Our Call:

In a powerful message, we are reminded that Jesus declared, “Truly I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do, and greater works and deeds will they do because I’m going to the Father.” This shift signified the coming of the Holy Spirit. As believers, understanding this mandate is crucial, as Jesus came not only to reveal the Father but to show us who we are and to dismantle the works of the devil.

Jesus’ Prayer for Unity and Our Commission:

In John’s Gospel, we find Jesus praying fervently for His disciples, declaring that they are not of this world, just as He is not. He prays for their sanctification in truth, stating, “As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.” This underscores the unity between the Father and the Son and emphasizes the same unity we are called to with Christ. Believers are urged to be one, mirroring the unity between the Father and the Son.

Expanding Our Identity: Prophet, Priest, and King:

In Ephesians 4, we discover various giftings bestowed upon believers, serving as tools rather than sources of personal glory. These gifts are meant to equip and empower each individual for the work of the ministry. The call to be a Prophet, Priest, and King is not limited to a select few but is an integral part of every believer’s identity.

Understanding Prophet, Priest, and King:

As we navigate our roles as Prophet, Priest, and King, we recognize that our strengths may lie more prominently in one area. Prophets preserve truth, Priests care for people with empathy, and Kings steward resources with excellence. However, our goal is to develop and balance all aspects of our identity in Christ, mirroring the diverse roles exemplified by Jesus throughout His earthly ministry.

Conclusion: Embracing Our Divine Identity

In closing, we are reminded that Jesus seamlessly embodied the roles of Prophet, Priest, and King. As believers, we are called to follow in His footsteps, understanding the appropriate application of each role in different situations. Let us commit to intentional growth in the areas where we may feel weaker, guided by the Holy Spirit. In doing so, we embrace the fullness of our identity in Christ, fulfilling the divine mandate placed upon us.
