Just like any natural father would do with his natural son in bringing his son into his business, Romans 8:14-39 provides for a father's heart to be imparted to his son. Hence, our Heavenly Father first orients us to who we are as His sons, and then goes through an extensive process of establishing us as His sons. These twenty-six verses produce some of the greatest adjustments to our inner man that we will ever experience. Here, our Father produces and adjusts our attitude as His son - and here our Father performs 'open-heart surgery' on us so that we have the attitude, confidence, and commitment to our sonship lives, just as He himself has. Here we learn that God our Heavenly Father has determined to deal with us as real, adult sons - and He expects us to deal with Him as a real, genuine Father. If understood and appreciated properly, this section of Romans will become the most endearing, enduring, and powerful passage you will ever encounter in God's word!
