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 Isaiah unit uses the Bible story included in Isaiah 7:14; 9:2, 6; 11:1-9. Long before Jesus was born, the Hebrew people were living in a time of great strife and unrest, and they longed for peace and hope. Their prophets told them of a promised Messiah, a gift from God. The Messiah would be a savior who would care for them as a shepherd cares for sheep. The promise was like a light leading them out of the darkness.
