15 [a]For ye have not received the [b]Spirit of bondage, to [c]fear again: but ye have received the Spirit of [d]adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Romans 8:15He declareth and expoundeth by the way, in these two verses, by what right this name, to be called the children of God, is given to the believers: because saith he, they have received the grace of the Gospel, wherein God showeth himself, not (as before in the publishing of the Law) terrible and fearful, but a most benign and loving father in Christ, so that with great boldness we call him Father, that holy Ghost sealing this adoption in our hearts by faith.
Romans 8:15By the Spirit is meant the holy Ghost, whom we are said to receive, when he worketh in our minds.
Romans 8:15Which fear is stirred up in our minds, by the preaching of the Law.
Romans 8:15Which sealeth our adoption in our minds, and therefore openeth our mouths.
