所受的灵 [The Spirit Received]





Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 8:15 :“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, Abba, Father.”

Today’s Meditation: The eternal life we received is the life of God’s children. From there onwards, we have the closest father-and-son relationship with God. The glorious and pleasant feeling we felt every time we call upon God our Abba Father is certainly indescribable. Once we have the life of God, we not only are sensitive towards sins, but also started to know God. This is the feeling we felt when we know God is the Father. We may be afraid of God if we just equip ourselves with knowledge without experiencing Him. We will not have the feeling of being God’s children if we do not get intimate with God. As a result, we only physically admit God is our Father without the feeling. We receive the Spirit of God’s children. That Spirit, is the exact same Spirit that entered Lord Jesus Christ during His baptism; the exact same spirit that led Him in the wilderness; the exact same spirit that gave Him power to do miracle works; and the exact same spirit that empowered His life and His ministry.
