“It is a useful word for Paul, for it signifies being granted the full rights and privileges of sonship in a family to which one does not belong by nature. This is a good illustration of one aspect of Paul’s understanding of what it means to become a Christian. The believer is admitted to the heavenly family, to which he has no rights of his own. But he is now admitted and can call God “Father”.
1. The struggle is real
2. There is no power over us
3. We need the peace of assurance

Key Theme:
Our adoption as sons and daughters is secure but walking in that security and as a member of the family can be difficult.

Key Application:
We must seek to live in full confidence that we have all the rights and privileges of Jesus himself abiding in his love.

Key Verse:
Romans 8:15 “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!””

Key Takeaways:
1. What are some areas of the flesh you are still tempted to walk in even though you are part of the family of God?

2. How do you still try to cling to control and trust in yourself, do you still doubt his good intent for you?

3. Write out three areas that you can see the fruit of the Spirit growing in your life. It might be helpful to ask loved ones around you.

Church family, we praise God for how faithfully in so many respects you give. Our church family is undeniably generous, but we still have great needs for supplication. We ask that you give joyfully, faithfully and sacrificially in response to how our great God and Savior has given to us.!/
