Distinctively Different – “The World Is Not As It Seems”

Today we begin a study of what I am calling The Road To Sonship. It is a road that has been neglected and overlooked for far too long. In this study we will discover together how to make,
“… you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:15 (NASB)
