Children of God

Bible Passage: Romans 8:12-39

Main Point: When we trust in Jesus, God gives us the Holy Spirit and makes us His children.

Key Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:17

Big Picture Question: Who changes us? The Holy Spirit changes us to be like Jesus for God’s glory.

Rome was one of the most important cities in Paul’s day. Paul understood that it was essential that the church in the capital of the Roman Empire be anchored in the gospel. Unlike many of the other churches we read about in the New Testament, Paul didn’t help plant the church in Rome; in fact, he hadn’t even visited yet. Paul was planning his first visit to this important church when he wrote a letter to make sure the believers there properly understood the gospel. 

The Book of Romans contains one of the clearest explanations of the gospel in the Bible. Paul opens his letter by explaining the sin problem that plagues us all. He then moves on to share how Jesus’ perfect life, death, and resurrection was sufficient to save people who trust in Jesus.  

In Romans 5, people are described as helpless, ungodly, sinners, and enemies apart from Christ. Then, in chapter eight, Paul begins to show how having a relationship with Jesus changes us. He describes believers as children of God in Christ. That’s quite a change! 

The gospel doesn’t just spare us from the ultimate consequences of our sin. The gospel doesn’t just make us neutral to God. Because of the gospel, we are adopted by God and have the right and privilege to call God our loving Father. Being children of God means we have nothing to fear. Our relationship with God is secure for eternity.
