Set free to be His children ~ The Roman Road

In Christ, we have the marvellous privilege of being adopted into the family of God as sons and daughters. Let’s explore what some of the privileges are of this adoption.⠀

The same power!

First, the same power which raised Jesus from the dead dwells within us. It breathes life into our mortal bodies–our decaying flesh. Death does not get the final say. Hallelujah! This power is miracle-working power (dunamis).⠀

“If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.”

Romans 8:11 ESV⠀⠀

Led by the Spirit 

Second, we get to be led by the Spirit of God. Praise God! The Holy Spirit is our help and comfort even when the going gets tough. He prays for us and through us. What a thought!⠀

“For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons and daughters of God.”

Romans 8:14 NASB⠀

Revealing of sons and daughters

Finally, creation groans to see the revealing of the sons and daughters of God. We have been set free to set others free–including creation. We are called to truly steward this earth and our spheres of influence (our metrons) well. We have been given delegated authority in this earthly realm.⠀

“For the eagerly awaiting creation waits for the revealing of the sons and daughters of God.”

Romans 8:19 NASB⠀

Are you operating in your delegated authority? Are you a son or daughter of the Most High? Are you conscious of this wherever you go? If not, you need to be because you, yes YOU, can change your world. Let us know what you think below…
