Benefits of the child of God

The child of God has a position in life. As a matter of fact its the highest position in life any man can ever get. The Bible describes such position as follows:
  • Ephesians 2:6...And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
The reason the child of God has this position is because God's Holy Spirit gives the believer God's seal of approval:
  • Ephesians 1:13...In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise
The sanctified child of God has a God given title. The title is Brethren. For this cause of Christ God is not ashamed to call them brethren:
  • Hebrews 3:11...For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
Any child of God can hold a Christian office. Christian offices are many. Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, deacons, ministers, evangelists, helps, etc.

A child of God has the full assurance of hope. Hope the unsaved can never experience.
  • Colossians 1:5-6..For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;  Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit,
Any child of God has a guarantee of a contented life in this life; and a free pass to Heaven "if" they stay within the guidelines of right-standing with God.

Simple truth. Simple Christianity. All inclusive for the child of God.
