Spirit of Adoption

Preached by

Through adoption as sons and daughters of God, we become heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ. This is scandalous because we who regularly detract from God’s glory will share in His glory

  1. The Holy Spirit gives us a new leader – He leads us according to the spirit of God rather than the spirit of the age.
  2. There are two spirits – the spirit of slavery that leads to fear, and the spirit of adoption that leads to crying out “Abba Father”.
  3. As adopted children of God, we inherit meaningful work, the whole earth, and eternity with God Himself.
  4. As heirs with Christ, we will also share in His sufferings in order to be glorified with Him. This assumes we will sacrifice for the sake of love, following Christ’s example.
  5. The Holy Spirit bears witness within us that we are God’s children.

Through the Holy Spirit we will hear and experience God’s love and secure position as His children. This will lead to freedom to serve and sacrifice out of love. Hear the Spirit’s witness over all others.

Through adoption we become secure heirs of God who receive an inheritance and a mission. The Holy Spirit enables this new identity and secure position as children of God.
