THE SPIRIT HIMSELF BEARS WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT
THAT WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD.
( ROMANS 8:16 *NKJV )

Dear Friend,
Indeed we are God’s Children for; 
GOD SENT FORTH HIS
SON, BORN OF A WOMAN, BORN UNDER THE LAW, TO
REDEEM THOSE WHO WERE UNDER THE LAW, THAT WE
MIGHT RECEIVE THE ADOPTION AS SONS. AND BECAUSE
YOU ARE SONS, GOD HAS SENT FORTH THE SPIRIT OF
HIS SON INTO OUR HEARTS.  ( GALATIANS 4:4-6 )

The Apostle Paul used adoption or “sonship” to illustrate
to us, the believer’s new relationship with God.  For when a
person becomes a Christian, he or she gains all the privileges
and responsibilities of a Child in God’s family.

One of these privileges is being lead by the Spirit.  Now we
may not always feel as though we belong to God, but the Holy
Spirit is our witness!  For His inward presence reminds us of
who we are and encourages us with God’s love.  For it is written;
NOW HOPE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT, BECAUSE THE LOVE
OF GOD HAS BEEN POURED OUT IN OUR HEARTS BY THE
HOLY SPIRIT WHO WAS GIVEN TO US. ( ROMANS 5:5 )

So Friend, have a wonderful day remembering that you are
indeed a Child of God Almighty, and an heir as well.  For it is
written, 
YOU ARE NO LONGER A SLAVE, BUT A SON; AND
SINCE YOU ARE A SON, GOD HAS MADE YOU ALSO AN
HEIR.
  
Now that should make your day, Indeed!   Amen.
( GALATIANS 4:7 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
