We have the Spirit of Christ in our hearts crying out, “Abba, Father.” When we do not know what to pray, He prays. As born again believers, we have been adopted into the family of God. We are sons, no longer slaves. As sons, we are heirs of God through Christ.
This sonship gives us access to all that belongs to our Father God. This inheritance goes beyond anything we can understand or perceive on our own. It is not of this realm. It is what is in heaven that will be on earth. It is abundant riches in every area of our lives. It is life and life more abundantly. The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy; but Jesus comes to give us His life. When we know we are sons, it is no longer important for us to lay hold of our inheritance. The Holy Spirit reaches out for what our Father has given us.
When division comes, sonship calls upon unity. When fear comes, sonship calls upon faith. When hopelessness comes, sonship calls upon hope. When lack comes, sonship calls upon provision. When the thief comes, sonship calls upon Father. When people look at us they are able to tell who our Father is, from glory to glory.
Galatians 4:6-7 “And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, ‘Abba, Father!’ Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”
