Our Identity

January 28 2024

Book: Romans

Scripture: Romans 8:12-17

One of the main challenges of faithfully following Jesus is experiencing subjectively what is true of Christians objectively. Perhaps no greater experience is the Holy Spirit helping us experience that we are sons and daughters of God, adopted into his family with unlimited access to his care, wisdom, compassion and protection. The passage speaks to the fear faced when our identity is fragile. JI Packer writes that a Christian’s apprehension of this identity is the “highest privilege the gospel offers.”
