Today is Saturday, 16 April in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of (Romans 8:16).
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.(Romans 8:16)
This scriptural text raises the question, who are the sons of God in the bible?
And after answering the above question as those who are led by the Spirit of God. The next question arises thus: how can you be led by the spirit of God to become a son of God?
In the book of Joel 2:28, God promised He is going to pour out His Spirit upon all flesh.
And as we can see in Acts 2, on the pentecost day that promised was fulfilled; as Peter reveals in verses 14-21.
Now after making this revelations, the people who saw everything and were amazed; asked Peter how they were going to receive the Holy Spirit, and Peter replied,
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”Acts 2:38-39.
Consequently, it was sin that deprived mankind of God’s saving grace and glory. Romans 3:23.
So therefore, the advent of the Holy Spirit is meant to reconcile the sinner who repents back to God.
And once he is able to do so, he will receive the Holy Spirit; who will always be there to prevent him from sinning against God again.
And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.Ezekiel 36:27.
As a matter of fact, if you want to become a son of God who is led by His Spirit; then you must repent and baptize in the name of Jesus for the remission of sin.
