The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”

Romans 8:15

We are Children of God, now adopted, we will be with him forever. Knowing this, our attention toward him is not as slaves who must obey or face punishment but as loyal sons and daughters who desire to please the father we love.

So as the Spirit dwells among the Church, let us not hold back from calling out “Abba, Father” and desiring a closer relationship with him.
