Needing a Certain Method for How to Become a Son of God

Right. So, if sons of God exist, then how do we become a son of God. Isn’t that the most vital question? Right there in Matthew 5:48, Jesus tells us.

Never have I heard this preached on. Never.

Never have I even heard the question asked: how? by what method?  But isn’t that the most vital question of all?

If we want to get there, we need to know where there is. Then we need to have a way to get there. If we just start out, without knowing the destination or the way, we may find ourselves snookered and disappointed.

Jesus clearly indicates that being loving is the same as being perfect. That has major implications.

Sonship is Real

Today we prove from the Bible that there are “sons of God” who are humans. We are looking for the Greek word for mature sons, “‘UIOS.”  This word is normally used of Jesus. A Roman adoption in which a rich father recognizes his grown son as being in business with him and able to represent the family uses this word “‘uios.” Other words possibly translated as sons or as children include  napios (babies that wear diapers), paideon (school children, moppets), and technon (teenagers.) In I John 3 “Now we are the sons of God” is technon. Now we are the teenagers of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be… but we will be like Him.”

There are 7 mentions in the New Testament of ‘uios, mature sons. Have you ever heard this? It is a shock to me that I have never ever heard a sermon listing all 7 mentions. Even though I have heard hundreds of hours of  one sort sonship preaching. (Oops… maybe there are more… will get back to you on that… but at least there are these 7.)

What do you think the reason is that no one has listed them?

Matthew 5:9 peacemakers will be called the sons of God

Luke 20:36 sons of the resurrection

Galatians 3:26  and 4:6&7   Now we are sons by faith.

Hebrews 2:10  Jesus is our Big Brother and brings many sons to glory; Also see Hosea 1:10

Romans 8:14 & 19   Verse 14 is in the present tense: the Sons of God are led by the Spirit of God.  Verse 19 is in the future: “the manifestation of the sons of God.”

And on perfection: Matthew 5:48 Perfection is possible now, and is based on love, also see Phillipians 2:15
