CHILDREN OF GOD

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Rom 8:15-17

15 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."* 16 For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God's children.

NLT

Maureen couldn’t believe that Mr. Willhorf was now her father. Mr. and Mrs. Willhorf saw her in the orphanage home and adopted her; they changed her last name to Willhorf and gave her a bedroom in their home. She had all the privileges of a true child. She was now to relate with Mr. and Mrs. Willhorf as her parents and no longer as the proprietors of the orphanage she grew up in.

In the Old Testament, the best relationship a human being could have with God was that of a slave and a master; that in itself was a great privilege and this would require that you walk in certain physical laws that are to produce righteousness in the followers. In the New Testament, God has chosen us and adopted us into His family. We are now members of the household of God. We are now to approach God with love and boldness just like a child would his father who loves him.

Go into today with the renewed mind that God is indeed your father, that because of this your relationship you have great privileges. Even if you sin God forgives you and does not remember your sins anymore. He is more interested in you than you can ever know.

Prayer: thank you heavenly father for making me your own. I pray you help walk worthy of this, in Jesus name I pray. Amen

-SD Abraham
