What is the Spirit of The Son of God?
Apostle Paul tells us that God put the Spirit of His Son into our hearts. But what exactly is this Spirit of the Son of God? Can a believer discern this spirit that God put in him?
Galatians 4:6 And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”
Now, here’s what the Bible tells us about the Son:
Colossians 1:15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and for Him.
Moreover, God conformed His believers in the image of His Son by sending the Spirit of the Son into their hearts.
Romans 8:28And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose. 29For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.
The Son Of God
Here is a list of the characteristics of the Spirit of the Son of God:
The Son is the living word of God
The Son is the king
The Son is the light
The Son is the sacrificial lamb
The Son is the Lion of Judah

The Son is the redeemer
The Son is the Shepperd
The Son is the door
The Son is anointed
The Son is the Christ
The Son is the morning star
The Son is the Livingstone
The Son is the gate
All these characteristics of the Spirit of the “Son of God” will be present in a person who believes in God and in His Son.
Colossians 1:27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Christ in you
Once the Spirit of the Son is fully developed in a person, that person no longer lives for himself, but instead, he now lives for Christ’s sake.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
In fact, the reason we can overcome the world is because of the Spirit of the Son that God has put in us.
1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Additionally, a person must believe that Jesus is the Son of God in order to overcome the world.
1 John 5:5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
“Beholding the Father” is experiencing God’s love.
Additionally, a person must believe and put faith in the Son in order to experience God’s love.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Once the Son of God is fully developed in a person, that person will have attained eternal life and will experience God’s love and glory.
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
And to experience the width and length, and depth of God’s love, a person must believe in God and have the Spirit of the Son fully developed in him.
And because of the love that God lavished on his Son, God gave him everything including the whole universe.
Revelation 3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
I hope that you’ve learned what the Spirit of the Son of God is from this blog.
The spirit of the Son of God has many characteristics. These characteristics will also be present in everyone who believes in God and His Christ.
I will close with the following verses from Apostle Paul.
Ephesians 3:16 I ask that out of the riches of His glory He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. Then you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 will have power, together with all the saints, to comprehend the length and width and height and depth 19 of the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Until next time friends, may God bless you!
