Matthew 22:44-45 (KJV); The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
In everything, Christ was a pattern unto us. It is, therefore, no mere coincidence that in the scriptures, David calls Him Lord, yet He is also known as the son of David.
Christ asks the disciples the interesting question, “if David then calls him Lord, how is he his son?”
God is telling us that it is possible for a son to become a Lord. However, he cannot become a Lord without firstly becoming a son because lordship is birthed through sonship.
This here, is one of the bedrocks of the biblical principle of submission. This pattern in the SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP between David and the Christ is a lesson to the Church on how sons supersede their fathers in works and achievements.
It is a divine design for sons to become greater than their spiritual fathers or mothers but that greatness cannot come without true submission, in the spirit of sonship.
God can take you higher and deeper than those who have taught you. This is possible through submission.
It is the joy of a father for his sons to do more. It is Christ’s joy for us to do greater works than Him.
We transition from sonship to lordship by walking in the true spirit of submission.

GOLDEN NUGGET: It is a divine design for sons to become greater than their spiritual fathers or mothers but that greatness cannot come without true submission, in the spirit of sonship. We transition from sonship to lordship by walking in the true spirit of submission.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this message. I receive its wisdom and walk in its understanding. In this Word, You have opened a divine wisdom for me, to be wiser than my teachers and greater than the ancients. I receive it as my portion. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
