Romans 8:14-17

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God”  
(Romans 8:14 KJV) 

Coming home one evening, I had the opportunity to marvel at a spectacular display of heavenly creation.  In the distance was a beautiful, seemingly round, vibrantly orange moon against the backdrop of the dark eastern sky.  A feeling of joy and belonging filled my spirit as I smiled saying, “Look at what my Father can do!”  What a powerful and awesome presence!

When we received Christ, we were adopted into God’s family.  Our salvation gave us a new birth.  So as Christians, we are children of God the Father, and should be led by His spirit.  As believers we must trust in God’s word.

We are shared heirs to our Father’s estate along with Jesus.  We are to lean on the Spirit for guidance, be assured that the Spirit will instruct us, and be blessed by the Spirit within us.  We are witnesses each day to God’s glorious estate.  We have only to look at the rising of the sun, the setting of the moon, or His creation of man.  We have been adopted into a magnificent family that will give us the full inheritance of everlasting life and all the glory that comes with it. This is ours!  Are you living with the spirit of Jesus in your heart?

Father,
We come humbly before You, thanking You for adopting us and giving us the rights and privileges to your kingdom.  Thank you for freeing us from the fear of coming before You.  May the spirit of Jesus Christ always be in our hearts.
In the name of Jesus, Amen.
