The Holy Spirit gives us a foretaste of our future glory

How do we become truly members of God's family?

"For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

And so we should not be like cringing, fearful slaves, but we should behave like God’s very own children, adopted into the bosom of his family, and calling to him, “Father,  Father.”    For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we really are God’s children."  (Romans 8: 14 - 16 TLB)

  1. The question "how do we become truly members of God's family? First we have to recognize and admit that we are all sinners (Romans 3:23 - for we all have sinned.) and we have to repent (that is to turn away from) of our sinful behavior and confess our sins to God (Romans 10:9-10-11). We then have to begin living life as a new creation and to intentionally sin no more.
