A Son and an Heir (Romans 8:14-17)

Pastor Mark Winder, December 18, 2011
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The book of Romans is a book about doctrine. Sadly, some consider it to be a dry, dusty epistle that divides Christians. But at the geographical center of the book is a passage which contradicts and corrects these stereotypes - and we find that doctrine doesn't divide, it unites. And through our union with Jesus Christ we are introduced to the most comforting of themes. We have been adopted into God's family, and have - not just a relationship - but a relation to God through Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:14-17

14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. (ESV)
