Excerpt from Shoreshim Ministries

Who Are The Sons of God?

In Paul’s letter to the Romans, specifically in chapter Eight, he repeatedly mentions the “sons of God.” He tells us, in fact, who the sons of God are.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God; for you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’ The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Rom 8:14-16).

If we read this chapter closely, we understand that to be led by the Spirit means to walk according to God’s law, His Torah. Paul plainly says that to walk according to the flesh - a walk that results in death – is “enmity with God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be” (Rom 8:7). And so, if walking according to the flesh means refusing to be subject to God’s law, then being led by the Spirit has to mean that the person – the son of God - is subject to the law of God.
