If Only I had a Place to Belong
A. Family is important to us
B. The book of Romans is all about how the family of God is created
Not everyone is a member of God’s family
A. We are all members of the human family
All made in the image of God
B. These verses make clear there are two families and
two fathers (John 8:31-47)
C. It always comes down to Jesus—do you reject him or
commit your life to him?
Confidence we are members of God’s family
A. How can we test our spiritual paternity?
B. First, we are being led by the Spirit (vs. 14)
How does the Holy Spirit do this?
a. He renews our minds (Romans 12:1-2)
b. He stirs our emotions to love God (Galatians 4:6)
c. He directs our wills to serve God (Philippians 2:12-13)
C. Second, we are adopted into the family (vs. 15)
We have been chosen by God to be part of His family
D. Finally, there is the personal affirmation (vs. 15-16)
1. We call Him, “Father”
2. This is the personal stirring of family affection
The Holy Spirit awakens in us a deep love for God
Do you understand how much God loves and values you?
You have a place to belong! You are part of a family! You
never need to fear you will be alone!
