Adoption and the Love of a Father

Adoption and the Love of a Father

Nov 11, 2018

Passage: Romans 8:12-17

Preacher: Logan Creasy

Detail:

Why care for the orphan?

  1. There is a great need.
  2. There is a great command.
  3. We have a great Heavenly Father.

 Two motivating dynamics: The flesh and the Spirit.

The flesh = spirit of slavery which leads to fear.
The Spirit = Spirit of adoption which leads to worship.

 Before we were lovable, God loved us!

 Our adoption means:

  1. Jesus meets our great need.
  2. The Spirit empowers us to obey his command.
  3. The Father receives us as his very own. 

We care for the least of these, because God cared for us.
