Children of God


For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs — heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. — Romans 8:14-17.

Just think of that! Those who are led by the Spirit of God are His children. If children, then heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ! These have been adopted by God as His own. They cry out to God, “Abba, Father.” These are willing to suffer with Christ, for His sake. These will be glorified with Christ at His coming.

One thought on “Children of God

  1. Beautiful and to the point. Pointing out confirmation, our spirit’s testifying of His Spirit and Sonship. Indirectly hinting at His leading us, guiding us, out of our new assignment, designation into trials. Wow. Neat. Thanks Thomas.
