Romans 8:14-16 (NLT) – For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.
The cross of Christ seals our adoption into God’s family, but it is the Holy Spirit that empowers us to daily live in this reality. The Spirit helps us call out to our “Abba Father,” and he affirms to us that we are his sons and daughters.
As you take time to reflect on this truth, pray and ask him to fill us with his Spirit today and every day so that we can live this out faithfully.
