The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. – Romans 8:16 (NIV)

How do we know that we are accepted by God? For the person who struggles with this, take heart: the very struggle can be a sign that the Spirit is dealing with you, and if the Spirit is dealing with you, this is a sign of being a child of God. We equate living a certain way with our acceptance, but the Scripture tells us another story. As we surrender to Jesus Christ with all of our faults, He sends His Spirit to perfect us. So both the sense of peace and struggle testify to being an heir with Christ. It is dullness and apathy that we should be concerned about.
