Romans 8:14-16 New International Version

14  For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15  The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[1] And by him we cry, "Abba,[2] Father." 16  The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
