Day 9: Conversations with God

Today’s Scripture:

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
Romans 8:14-17

Additional Scriptures:
Ephesians 1:3-14

Prayer + Reflection

  1. In the Lord’s prayer, Jesus identifies with us as fellow members of God’s family. He prays for us and as one of us. Spend some time praying together as a family as well as on your own for each member of your family. 
  2. Thank God for serving as your Father in Heaven. Name some ways that He is fatherly to his children.
  3. What is your family tree like? Are there members God has placed in your life in love, if not in blood? Thank the Lord that He gives us the gift of community and ‘family’ and that we are free to speak to Him as sons and daughters. 

Family Moment

Take some time to consider your immediate and extended family or close friends. Pray for those who may not personally know God as heavenly Father and Jesus as savior.
