The Privilege of Being a Son

My father is a retired orthopaedic surgeon, which meant that his days were often long and busy. For the most part, he was unreachable. If you tried to call him during the day, the best you could have done was to leave a message with his office staff, requesting him to return your call. However, if I tried to call him, I could usually reach him. I simply told the office staff, “This is his son.” Even if he was incredibly busy, there was something about the words, “this is his son,” that gave me access to him.

If you are trusting in Christ, then the same is true for you and your heavenly Father. “You are no longer a slave, but a son” (Galatians 4:7). It’s with good reason that Jesus taught us to pray, saying, “Our Father” (Matthew 6:9). So, enjoy the privilege of being a son.
