2// In Christ, you are a son of God. Know it and feel it.
3// By faith you are in Christ. In Christ you are Abraham's offspring. As Abraham's offspring you are an heir according to promise (not the law).
4// Your name can be on the title of the car, but you don't really own it if you don't get to really drive it.
5// You're not a slave, you're a son.
6// "Adoption as sons" = Sonship (not Sunchips!). It's a legal term. It's a change of status. The judge hasn't just set you free, he's adopted you and made you his heir.
7// We can feel our identity as God's sons through the Holy Spirit.
8// "God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, 'Abba! Father!'" - Galatians 4:6
9// "If you want to judge how well a person understands Christianity, find out how much he makes of the thought of being God's child and having God as his Father." - J.I. Packer
10// We can approach the Father same way Jesus did. We have his status as true sons because of the cross.
