Adopted

JULY 14, 2021

 

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. John 1:12-13 (NIV).

 

I was adopted into the family of God in the last week of November, 1979. It was phenomenal. By faith, I confessed my sin and asked Christ to be my Lord and Saviour.

It still leaves me in awe. I was a child of the world, then God adopted me as His son. Now, like millions of other adopted children, from every tribe and tongue and people, I have a new life, a large family, a secure future, and a Father who ceaselessly loves and nurtures me.

The Scriptures mention some of the many tremendous privileges that come with adoption:

  • All that Christ has is ours because we wear the life of Christ as full-fledged sons and daughters (Galatians 3:27).

  • We are equally privileged. There is no racial, economic, social, religious, or cultural prejudice in God’s family (Galatians 3:28, Colossians 3:11).

  • We receive God’s promised justification – that is, acquittal of all guilt and forgiveness of all sin (Galatians 3:29).

  • We are set free – liberated from the burden and restrictions of law-keeping (Galatians 4:1-5).

  • We know God intimately as our own Father, bear His name, have His Spirit within us, and can call out to Him at any time of the day or night about anything that’s on our hearts or minds (Galatians 4:6).

  • We inherit everything that God’s promised to give us, both in this life and in eternity (Galatians 4:7).

 

Isn’t that tremendous? Do you realize how special it is to be adopted into God’s family? If you’re not adopted, why don’t you ask Him today? Believe me, it will be the best thing you’ll ever do.
