REVIVE US LORD!
Pastor of First Baptist Church
ROMANS 8:15 (NIV)
15The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live
in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
Salvation breaks the bondage and replaces fear with faith.
7God did not give us a spirit of fear
but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7
The father’s absolute control over his family.
A symbolic sale using scales and coins.
The presentation of a legal case for the adoption.
The adopted person lost all of his rights in his old family and gained all the rights of his new family.
The adopted person became an heir to the father’s estate.
The adopted person could not be disowned.
The records of the old life of the adopted person were completely wiped out.
The adopted person was literally and completely the child of his new father.
