The Holy Spirit within us gives us the true witness that we are His. The Spirit, it’s so important for us to recognize, is not lying to us. We can’t say this is just a pep talk that the Spirit gives us “well don’t worry, it’s like Father is your God,” or that “you have God as your Father, isn’t that great?” It’s not that this is a pipe dream, it’s not that the Spirit is telling you about something, “wouldn’t it be great if this were so? It’s almost as if this were the case.” No. The Spirit is confessing to you a reality that is actually true in your life.
God is your Father. The Spirit of God is witnessing this to you. The Spirit is speaking truth to our souls when He says to us, “You are no longer a slave to sin. You are now the beloved child of God Himself.” God loves you if you are a believer in Jesus Christ as much as He loves Jesus Christ. He has adopted you in to His family. You belong here. The overflowing love of God as Father to His children is yours.
