Work of Reconciliating Redemption

“Because of the self-sacrificial, self-donating work of God’s Son at the cross, God has given us none other than the Spirit of His Son, our Elder Brother, to place ‘Abba! Father!’ in our hearts and on our lips. According to the Gospel of Mark, our Elder Brother cried out ‘Abba! Father!’ on the eve of his accomplishment of redemption (Mark 14:36). So when we are told that God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts to cry ‘Abba! Father!’, we are meant to understand this gift as experiential evidence that Jesus’ work of reconciliating redemption was fully accomplished.”
