Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Indeed, those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery so that you are afraid again, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we call out, “Abba,Father!” The Spirit himself joins our spirit in testifying that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, we are also heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, since we suffer with him, so that we may also be glorified with him. (Romans 8:14-17 EHV)
Hymn ELH 17:4,8 Awake and Sing the Song
Look back and see the state
Wherein your nature lay
Then wonder at His love so great
Who did your ransom pay.
Sing, for you hear Christ say,
“Your sins are all forgiv’n.”
Go forth, rejoicing all the way,
And singing enter heav’n.
Heavenly Father, thank You for forgiving my sins through Christ and adopting me as Your child. Help me to see my trials and suffering on this earth are only temporary. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
