NAMES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Throughout the Bible, the Holy Spirit is called by a number of names which describe His character and ministry:
1. THE SPIRIT OF ADOPTION
''For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of son ship (or adoption). And by him we cry,'Abba, Father ''Romans 8:15 (see also Galatians 4:6).
The very first work of the Holy Spirit in our lives is to give us spiritual"birth"into God's family (see John 3:3,5-8), and His continuing ministry in this capacity is to testify to our new relationship and help us grow in it.
