What determines A worthy son and sister of God? 5 key aspects

“But the number of the children of Israel will be like the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or counted; and it will happen that in the place where they are told: You are not my people, they will be told: You are children of the living God.” Hosea  1:10

First of all, it is worth mentioning that a worthy child of God is one who has assumed the commitment to have God as the only guide in this life. Notice that we are not talking about spiritual life, but about everything that it contains: God as the only North. By accepting this commitment, we are responsible for living according to His law and His mandates.


“Rather, love your enemies and do good and lend not expecting anything in return, and your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High; because He is kind to the ungrateful and perverse.” Luke 6:35

A worthy child of God has a capacity for empathy that causes others' problems to suffer as their own, generating an inevitable love for the other, trying to help him without regard. In that way the first law of Christ is fulfilled: you will love your neighbor as yourself.


“And Jesus said to them: The children of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are deemed worthy to reach that century and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; because they cannot die anymore, for they are like angels, and they are children of God, being children of the resurrection. ”Luke 20:34-36

The wise and humble counsel are characteristic of a lamb from the flock of God. Let us remember that it is not necessary to have experience to give advice or to give a word of encouragement, it is only enough to resort to the Word of God to know how the Most High worked in a situation similar to the one we are going through. 


“But to all who received him, he gave the right to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in his name, who were not born of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13

A worthy child of God has a gentle aspect, because he knows he has the invaluable company of the Lord, because he appreciates all the blessings he receives and that exalts him as a person. He also knows that his future is secured to the right of Christ, with the strong promise of eternal life in paradise with those he always loved.


"That you may be blameless and simple, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, in the midst of which you shine as lights in the world," Philippians 2:15

A worthy son of God honors and glorifies the Most Holy, since he lives through Him. Honoring the Lord means being in permanent close relationship with God, attentive to doing His will when He manifests it in our hearts.
