The mighty hand of God brought Israel out of Egypt so that they could worship God in the desert. The miraculous signs and wonders that God did in Egypt foretell what God will do in the future with His people Israel. The Lord says in His word in Exodus 13 to remember what I did for you and tell your children.
Remember your slavery….remember that you cried out to God….remember that I sent a man called Moses to help…remember the signs and wonders I did…remember the last plague of the killing of the firstborn son and animal…remember it was by the mighty hand of God that brought you out…
Now, imagine that you were this son who was given to God. What do you think your life would entail?
Maybe the firstborn son would learn the scriptures/meditate day and night (Psalm 1:2; Joshua 1:8)
∻The firstborn son would pray with others/pray without ceasing (Philemon 1:6; 1Thessalonians 5:17)
∻The firstborn son serves others (Luke 22:27; Romans 14:8; 1Peter 4:11)
∻The firstborn son sings songs and hymns to God/sing psalms (Nehemiah 12:24; Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16; Hebrews 2:12)
∻The firstborn son writes God’s words and miracles for remembrance (Psalm 87:6; Romans 10:5; 2Peter 3:16)
∻The firstborn son reflects God’s glory (1Corinthians 11:7)
Does this firstborn son sound familiar? If you call yourself a Christian you are that firstborn son separated and set apart for God. This is your life in Christ to be that firstborn son. We are sons and daughters to the King and because of that we are heirs to the throne of God.
Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when God set you free from slavery to a life of a firstborn son?
I remember the room and my single bed and that I was on my knees giving up my control. How about you do you remember what God has done for you?
God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) God did this so that we could all be firstborn Sons. We all could inherit everlasting life.
But you say how can I be a firstborn Son am a girl? Son just means children of a parent so either male or female are a Son. (In some cases Man is also refer to as human but not in all cases.)
First, realize you can’t make it on your own…your life is not your own and there is a higher power…realize you do not like the life your living …you think there is more to this life than this…you realize you have this heavy burden on your heart and you do not nowhere to turn…and then you sense something…someone calling your name…he is beckoning you to turn around…to come home…because He is missing His firstborn Son…so you turn and walk boldly into the throne room of God…and you find yourselves in the arms of Jesus Christ and you are crying how sorry you are that you ever thought you could live apart from Him…you repent and believe that Jesus Christ came to live and die for your sins and you ask Jesus Christ to come and live inside of you. You surrender your life for His life of a Firstborn Son of a King, Jesus Christ.
Remember and write it down and tell your children how Jesus Christ by His mighty hand took you out of Egypt and set you free. Now, live for Christ and be that firstborn Son so that you will reflect the glory of God. So, others will see and turn back and find Christ.
Thank you, Lord that you made me a firstborn Son for I am not worthy but you are the worthy one. Thank you, Father that you came and died so that I could have an everlasting life with you. Thank you, Lord that you are the one and only one I love and that you do not give up on us but continue to work in us to get the best out of us. Thank you.
Father, I come before you now to pray in all earnestness for your people who are called by your name that they will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways so that they will be called firstborn Son of righteousness. I pray for every family in heaven and on earth that derives its name from Jesus Christ. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:15-21) In Jesus Christ name, I pray. Amen.
