Is this the lesson for Emmet Fox’s “Children of The Most High”?
CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH
Read Matthew 7:7-11, suggests Emmet Fox
This is the wonderful passage in which Jesus enunciates
the primary truth of the Fatherhood of God.
He says here, definitely and clearly, that
the real relationship of God and man is that of parent and child.
It is extremely difficult to realize the far-reaching importance
that this declaration holds for the life of the soul.
It is axiomatic, of course, that the offspring must be of
the same nature and species as the parent;
and so if God and man are indeed Father and child,
man must be essentially divine too,
and susceptible of infinite development
up the rising pathway of divinity.
That is to say, as man's true nature unfolds,
he will expand in spiritual consciousness
until he has transcended all bounds of human imagination.
It is in reference to our glorious destiny,
that Jesus himself says elsewhere, quoting the older scriptures:
Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your law,
I said, “Ye are gods?”
If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came,
And the scripture cannot be broken...
(John 10:34-35) In my naborhoods scripture is broken all the time,
how is it in yours?
