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 Chi-Rho is one of the earliest cruciform symbols used by Christians. It is formed by superimposing the first two letters of the word "Christ" in Greek. The Chi-Rho invokes the crucifixion of Jesus as well as symbolizing his status as the Christ.
The earliest evidence of the Chi-Rho symbol is Constantine's use of it on the labarum, the imperial standard, in the early t century CE. Lactantius, a 4th century Christian apologist, reports that on the eve of the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312 CE, Constantine had a vision of God in which he was commanded to mark his men's shields with the Chi-Rho symbol. After Constantine's success at the Milvian bridge, the Chi-Rho became the official imperial insignia.
Archaeologists have uncovered evidence demonstrating that the Chi-Rho was emblazoned on the helmet and shield of Constantine as well as those of all of his soldiers. Coins and medallions minted during Constantine's reign also bore the Chi-Rho.
