You not a slave but an Heir!
“Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son,
then an heir of God through Christ.” (Galatians 4:7)
You were once enslaved by satan, subject to the basic principles of this natural cursed world. But, when you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you received emancipation. You are now an Heir of God and Joint Heirs with Christ. “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [Him], that we may be also glorified together.” Romans 8:16, 17.
You can now claim full rights as a Son/Daughter of God. You have an
intimate relationship with the Lord of the universe. You have every right to every Promise that God has ever made to His People. And because of this God has sent His Holy Spirit to dwell in your heart and it is He who moves you to see the reality of God being your (Abba) Father.
So, you are no longer a slave but a Son/Daughter and He has made you an Heir, entitling you to receive all that He has as your very own. As a Son/Daughter of God, you were divinely given the Holy Spirit the moment you were adopted by God.
Abba is an Aramic domestic term by which the Father was called with
affection in the intimacy of the Family. You can now call Him ABBA Father.

“I know my God, and more importantly, I am known by Him. I am no longer a slave, but an Heir of God through Christ, Amen.”
