Beloved Names of God...."Spirit of Adoption"

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear;
 but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father."
Romans 8:15 KJV
 
  • Name of God the Holy Spirit
  • The Holy Spirit is referred to as the "Spirit of adoption" once in the KJV.
  • Adoption means to accept something or someone and make it your own.
  • In Romans 8:15, Paul was describing to the Roman Christians how they were in a new relationship- not one of bondage but one of love to and from the Father.
God doesn't force anyone into a relationship. He will try and try again to kindle trust and acceptance within us, and even when we have walked away countless times, He will still be loving us and eagerly awaiting for us to embrace Him. That acceptance is adoption. Through it God fully accepts us as family and we fully accept Him as our Father.
