The Firstborn

The Firstborn

Romans 8:29 (KJB)   For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

God knew all about you since the beginning of time.  The time of your birth and your position in this world does not come as a surprise to God.  God knew you before you were born, and He has a particular will for your life even before your birth.

You see, nothing is by accident, chance, or just because that is the way it works out.  Each individual’s life is formed and crafted by God.  God has placed a reason upon your life and mine and desires for us to follow His will and direction in our life.  However, God will not lasso us and compel us to live strictly according to His plans.  Each of us is given the ability to make choices concerning our lives in this world, and in doing so, we allow the premise of sowing and reaping and rewards and benefits to color in our life.

Jesus Christ served the will of God and was the firstborn, and we, as children of God, are to follow His example in fulfilling the will of God placed upon our lives.

A child of God is born, or resurrected unto new spiritual life in God and is a spiritual family member.  God’s firstborn Son, Jesus Christ, is the firstborn, and we, saved souls, are the many among Him.
