And because you are sons, God has sent forth into our hearts the Spirit of His Son, crying, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a servant, but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Galatians 4:6-7
As children of God through faith in Jesus Christ and being baptized in His name, God gives to us His Holy Spirit, who creates faith in our hearts and moves us to trust that God indeed accepts us as His own dear children. The Holy Spirit moves us to address God as our dear Father and assures us that, as God’s sons, we have an eternal inheritance awaiting us in heaven through faith in Christ Jesus.
I thank You, dear Father, for accepting me as your dear child and granting to me Your Holy Spirit and an eternal inheritance in heaven for Jesus’ sake. In His name, I pray. Amen.
