Adopted: Children of God

Pastor Matthias Haeusel teaches that we are heirs to the throne of heaven, that we have been adopted by the creator of the universe. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are also brothers and sisters of Christ, through the Holy Spirit.

“So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.”
