When we were Born-Again, we were Born Again into the Family Of God, and He gave us power to become sons of God (John 1:12) Learn about this through Pastor Jose Boveda’s new message “THE SPIRIT OF ADOPTION.”
Romans 8:15 "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father."
adoption - a son, a placing, to place, signifies the place and condition of a son given to one to whom it does not naturally belong
The Spirit of Adoption, that is; the Holy Spirit who; given as the firstfruit of all that is to be theirs; produces in them the realization of sonship and the attitude belonging to sons.

Ephesians 1:5: "Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will."
