Knowing You Have Received

Book of Romans

A Sermon on Romans 8:15

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” (ESV)

Arguments for understanding 'received' passively; New testament usage; the laying-on of hands; the sovereignty of the Holy Spirit; knowing you have received.
