The Spirit of Belonging: Grafted In
Paul David Guidry's picture

Romans 8:16 (NASB) For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” 

God has been breathing life into dead things since Day 6 of creation! And he has called us to do the same. In the beginning, God called things that were not as though they were already in existence. He spoke the dream of His heart and it became reality. The goal of that dream is you! He declared His name and nature in the darkness and light was the manifestation. He defined and demonstrated faith from the beginning. This is what separates us from the world but places us firmly in the mission to the world. Faith. That cord that ties us all together in unity and love by the bond of the Spirit in Christ Jesus as we are tethered together to this Spirit of Adoption. By this faith we are grafted into the family of God. This is the Spirit of belonging. You belong here!

When you come to Jesus you become partakers and participators in His divine nature. His divine power gives you everything you need for life and godliness. He does not give you a spirit of fear, but of love, power and discipline.  

Where hearts are broken, you bind them up

Where people are captive, you declare their freedom

And where hope is dead; where sickness abounds; where bodies have failed, you breathe the proclamation of life because that is who He has made you to be through the Spirit of Adoption.

This Spirit of belonging makes you a child of royalty! So, be royal indeed, and leave a trail of His lavish love everywhere you go!

Romans 8:16 (The Passion Translation) 16 For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as he whispers into our innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!”

Jeremiah 31:3

I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness

The love of the Father is not contingent on circumstances. The love of the Father is not fleeting. From creation, God fixed His eyes on the hearts of mankind and has never shifted His gaze since. The Father’s love is not a passing fancy. His love is not based on a carnal...
