Romans 8:14-15 NIV 2011
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
Holy God created man. Matthew 5:45a, “that you may be children of your Father in heaven.” Being a child of God comes with a responsibility. Paul’s letters consistently show the Spirit leads God’s people toward holiness. Those having faith in Jesus Christ were freed from the punitive list of laws. Galatians 5:18, “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” The Holy Spirit is given to those whom God’s adopted who place their faith in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit gives power to live a holy life.
We are children of God and nothing can change that. Nothing! What we do as His children is the choice each of us has to make. It’s my daily choice when my feet hit the floor to look to Him for direction. Sitting here this morning is the best place for me to be. Reflecting on all He’s done for me recently brings a smile to my lips. I was adopted as my sisters used to tease. The amazing Holy Spirit gives me the power to live a holy life for Him.
How is the Holy Spirit powering us today?
