Privileges and responsibilities

God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.  Gal. 4:5-6

Through Christ we become what we were not. His Spirit empowers us to carry out the privileges and responsibilities that adoption bestows on us. We now have an intimate father-chlid relationship with God and represent His gracious gift of Christ to the world around us.

Abba, bring me ever closer to You and help me to represent well.
