Abba, Father: Romans 8:14-16

14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. 15For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children.

Romans 8:14-16 (NET)

Are you feeling lost, alone, unwanted, or afraid? You are not alone; those who believe, who are led by the Holy Spirit, are children of God. We have not received a spirit of slavery but the Spirit of adoption, allowing us to call God; Abba, Father. We are His children, heirs to His kingdom. We can reach out in prayer to God, our Heavenly Father, for advice and guidance; He is our help, hope, and future. We can relax knowing that God, Abba, loves us and has a plan for us:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11) We may go through difficult times, but God, our Father, is with us always.

All that accept Christ and are Spirit lead; are God’s children allowing us to cry out to Him in need, for our Heavenly Father loves all His children. What fear are you holding onto that you need to give to God, Abba, our Father?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, Abba, we are your children, and we worship and praise You. Thank you for Your forgiveness, care, and love. Teach us to cry out to You in prayer when we need help, direction, and guidance. Let the Holy Spirit guide and direct us, and bring us closer to You and Your kingdom. Like the mums and begonias, grow together with beauty and harmony, teach us as children of God to live together in harmony and peace. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

Children of God: 1 John 3:1

3 See what amazing love the Father has given us! Because of it, we are called children of God. And that’s what we really are! The world doesn’t know us because it didn’t know him.

1 John 3:1 (NIRV)

What amazing love God our Father has given us. His love for us is unconditional, forgiving, compassionate, and patient. In the completeness of His love and care, He has called us children of God. As children of God, we walk in faith and exhibit our likeness to God by showing His love to others. We were ransomed by Jesus, saved by His blood. The world does not know us because it never knew or accepted Christ or God’s word.

How do we show the world that we are children of God?

Prayer: Our loving Father, we thank You for your forgiveness and grace. We are blessed to be known as children of God, loved by our Heavenly Father. Teach us to walk in faith, live in hope, and follow Your path for us. Let us love one another and share Your compassion. Like the brightly “robed” open blossoms of the lilies, let us be robed in Your truth and open-hearted to others. In Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen
