The Spirit of Adoption
When it comes to the Trinity, many Christians unfortunately and tragically tend to treat the Holy Spirit like a step child. Since this is a series on the doctrine of adoption we certainly want to address the unfortunate negative imagery of the proverbial step-child, especially when it is applied to God. We need to understand the Spirit - He is the third member of the Holy triune God. The relationship of the Father and Son had obvious implications for adoption, but what about the Spirit? What role does He play in this? In this sermon, Pastor Matt builds on the theology of the last sermon, unpacking the role of the Spirit in the Trinity, in Creation and in the adoption of sinners into the family of God.
