I’ve been learning so much about what God thinks about me, about humility, and about sonship. In his book, “The Secret Romance,” John Eldredge tells us how God pursues us because he wants relationship with us and just wants us! God’s love for you is deeper and wider than the very limits of our universe.
I’ve learned the difference between being humble and having inferior pride. Humility is having an accurate assessment of yourself; inferior pride is thinking lowly of your self or not worthy.
I also have been learning about the difference between sonship and servanthood. Sonship is relationship based, it is ownership, and sons are family oriented. Servants are requirement based, they have no ownership and are issue oriented.
Being relationship based means doing things out love for the Father and love for others while requirement based means doing things out of obligation or because you are required to do it.
Ownership is acknowledging your actions, taking ownership in the kingdom of heaven and ownership as sons. Being family oriented means caring more about the person and their value as a son or daughter of the King, while being issue oriented means caring more about the behavior of the person instead of actually caring about the person.
Are you living in sonship or servanthood? Are you walking out humility or pride? I dare you to ask God how much he loves you, then silence yourself and Satan, and just listen to God.
