The Holy Spirit speaks to us, our true selves, and nothing less. God does not do business with our false selves. God is absolutely wild about us and has adopted us as his very own children. No longer do we need to behave properly or pretend to be something we are not or put up defenses. No–God accepts us exactly as we are. For we have been redeemed and transformed from within by the renewing of our minds. We have become, through God’s love, what God intended for us all along. This fact alone helps us shed our fears, heal our sins, and take off our glittering images. We are God’s very own children!
- Romans 8:1 - 21
