“Abba! Father!”

Scripture reading for August 20th:  Galatians 4, Psalm 16, Proverbs 12

Key Scriptures:  Galatians 4:4-7  “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.  And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”  So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”

Those who place their faith in Jesus Christ are adopted into God’s forever family, the Church, as sons of God.  The proof of this is the cry of the Holy Spirit within the believer “Abba! Father!”  We are no longer slaves of sin and Satan, but truly free.  The Holy Spirit enables us to confess this truth.

Faith Confession:  I am adopted into God’s forever family, the Church, and now call God my “Abba, Father!”  I have been set free from slavery to sin by faith in Jesus Christ.  Jesus is my Lord!

Proverbs 12:28 “In the path of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.”
