The Spirit Of Adoption (Adopted #6) (Romans 8:12-17)Andrew Mihaleff, 02/06/2019
Part of the Adopted series, preached at a Pulpit Series service
Romans 8:12-17. As our Adopted series heads for home, Andrew Mihaleff considers the role of the Holy Spirit. While we rightly love the Holy Spirit for His power and gifts, we need to see them through the filter of our adoption. The purpose of the Holy Spirit is always to lead us back into intimacy with God, and by His power, He leads us and moulds us into the royal children that God has called us to be.

12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 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!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
