RCCG Open Heaven 26 July 2022 Daily Devotional Message
In Ephesians 5:1, the Bible says;
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.
Anyone who claims to be a child of God must also ensure that he or she behaves like God. If a child claims to belong to a father and he is loyal to another father, that child would be deemed a bastard. This means that if you claim to be a child of God, you may need to check where you really stand. (1 John 3:9) says those who are born of God do not sin.
Are you still sinning and feeling it is normal? A true child of God cannot consider sin to be normal. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 7:16;
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
What is this fruit? It is the fruit that proves to everyone who meets you that you have the Spirit of God living in you – the fruit of the Spirit. What fruits do you bear? Based on the fruits that you bear, whose child can your colleagues, family members and neighbors say that you are?
Do your colleagues bring offers to you to cheat your organization because they know you will consent to them? If yes, you are not bearing fruits for God but for the devil. Do you still repay evil for evil? That is not the character of God but that of the devil. You need to be clear whose child you are so that you don’t fall into the Category of a bastard.

If you are a child of the devil, well then, why claim to be a child of God? Why join children of God to suffer your stomach when it is time to fast? Why not just go ahead and live for the devil all the way so when he is to be sent to the lake of fire you’ll go along with him? However, if you claim to really be a child of God, then your character should resemble that of Christ and everyone around you should testify that you resemble your Father in heaven.
On the last day, Jesus will sift the shaft away from the wheat. He will separate the bastards from His real children. This is because, on the last day, He will tell some people “I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all [ye] workers of iniquity” (Luke 13:27). If you are indeed a child of God, you will be living a holy life.
Take a moment to inspect your life right now. In what areas have you not been behaving like God? Repent and start to behave like your Father.
