Winter SWO: Spirit of Adoption
Rob Conti : Romans 8 : Winter SWO : January 19, 2019
The same Spirit that raised Jesus lives in us. In Christ, we have all of the spiritual blessings. Because of this, kill sin because this is not who we are any longer. Instead, we should be led by the Spirit because we have been adopted into the family of God.
God the Father loves us with the same love that He loves Jesus with. We must then demonstrate the same relationship that Jesus had with God. We spend time with the Father, seek to do His will, serve well, trust Him when we are suffering or tempted, and believe His promises.
Through our adoption as sons and daughters, we have the sure hope of eternity with God in His kingdom — a perfect world under the rule of Jesus.
