Read Romans 8:1-16

The 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.” Romans 8:15 NIV

Observation
When we open the door to allow Jesus to be the Forgiver of our past and the Leader of our future, we also become His heirs through adoption. We are no longer a slave to fear, but free to partake of His treasure. Now we can open the door and say, “ABBA, DADDY, I’m home!” He then invites us to see and learn all that is now ours through His adoption of us.

Application
Think of what it is to be a son/daughter in your home. You have your room to use. Anything in the fridge is there for you to open the door and enjoy. All that is in the home is yours for the taking. So it is now with being a son/daughter of the House! Now all the glorious inheritance of the incomparable power of Almighty God is ours! All the love, peace, joy, and revelation is ours if we choose.

Prayer
Father, we thank You for the precious price that Jesus paid by giving Himself that we would be made sons and daughters of your kingdom. Fill us anew that we may use all that is before us for Your glory and growth of Your wonderful kingdom. Amen
