Adopted as His Own

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when He adopted you as His own children. Now we call Him, “Abba, Father.” Rom. 8:15

Do you realize that no one is born a child of God? We have to be adopted by Him into His family. He wants children, not slaves. This happens when we surrender to Jesus Christ and allow God’s Spirit to live in us. God then gives us the privilege to call Him Father.
