Take Home Truth – We are adopted into the family
God is awesome
We are not
God loved us and paid our sentence
Receive God’s gift through faith
Romans 8:1 There is now no condemnation and for those who are in Christ Jesus
Live our Christian life from Gratitude not Guilt
Romans 8:14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.
My MIND is a spiritual battlefield
The Spirit changes my tastebuds
Sick of sin/ Enjoy God
The Spirit whispers his ways
“What would you have me think”
Romans 8:15 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.”
1 John 3:1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God
Romans 8:15-16 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.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.
Romans 8:17a And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory.
Romans 8:17b But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first
Philippians 1:29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him
Jesus is exclusive. Jesus judges sin. Jesus affirms hell.
1 Peter 2:20-21 But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
We aren’t alone in stupid
1 John 5:19 We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one.
As one commentator on the book of Revelation said, “Satan’s main job is to deceive.”
1 John 3:13So don’t be surprised, dear brothers and sisters, if the world hates you.
Thank you for adopting me
