WE ARE ADOPTED BY HIM
So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” Galatians 4:6
According to the Life Application Bible in Roman culture, the adopted person lost all rights in his old family and gained the rights of a legitimate child in his new family. He became a full heir to his new father’s estate. Likewise, when a person becomes is born again Christian and gives his life to Jesus he or she gains all the privileges and responsibilities of a child in God’s family.” We then become his son and lord becomes our father.
Psalm 89:26 says
“And he will call out to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.’”
