All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
The Foundations of Christian Faith series was established to enable readers to learn about theology in ways that are clear, enjoyable, and meaningful. Each volume examines the doctrines of Christian faith and stimulates readers not only to think more deeply about their faith but also to lead them to understand their faith in relationship to contemporary challenges and questions.
In this brief volume, Mateen Elass provides a clear explanation of what the church believes the Holy Spirit to be and its role in the church and the world. This engaging study will help open new windows of understanding about the ways of the Holy Spirit in our Christian experience.
