New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. 14 because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15 So you should not be like cowering, fearful slaves. You should behave instead like God's very own children, adopted into his family -- calling him "Father, dear Father." 15 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ""Abba," Father."
16 For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we are God's children. 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
17 And since we are his children, we will share his treasures -- for everything God gives to his Son, Christ, is ours, too. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
