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.
Most everyone's heard of the Ten Commandments, but what are they really all about? Find out with "The Ten Commandments--Then and Now." This new study views God's ancient law, handed down to Moses at Mount Sinai, from the perspective of twenty-first century Christian faith. The Ten Commandments contain both timeless moral laws and rules that help us understand and relate to God. The apostle Paul said, "We know that the law is good if a man uses it properly" (1 Timothy 1:8 niv)--and since Jesus came to "fulfill the law" (Matthew 5:17), a study of the Ten Commandments can reveal truths to encourage, challenge, and build us up in our faith.
