We Are His Children

The Spirit Himself speaks to our spirits and makes us sure that we are God’s children.  Romans 8:16

Did you know that the Holy Spirit speaks to our hearts?  He does!  One of the things He tells us is that we are Gods children.  Even after we confess our sins and follow Jesus, we can doubt our relationship with God.  We wonder if He really forgave and accepted us.  The Holy Spirit speaks to our spirits and confirms that God’s word is true and that He has adopted us into His family.  I am God’s child, not because I feel forgiven, but because God said so in His word and the Holy Spirit has testified to my heart the truth of His Word.
