When we see how often most Christians have missed the larger intention of the Holy Spirit’s coming and ministry, we understand how imperative it is to comprehend the divine intention of the Father. Only then can we see how Fatherhood is the key to understanding God’s purposes for the Son and His many sons. Too often it would appear that the Holy Spirit has been relegated to little more than “a blessing machine.” To make the assumption that the Holy Spirit was sent for our benefit and our comfort is to miss the very intention in the Father. It is the Holy Spirit who materializes us into adoption by the Father.
