Adoption

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Ephesians 1:5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will,

We are not God’s children by birthright. We are His creation. God loves His creation so much that, regardless of His creation’s sin, He sent His only Son to this earth in the form of His creation to shed His own blood for our redemption. Because of this, when we receive His Son into our hearts, lives and minds, God adopts us as His own children. This adoption gives us all the privileges of the Son. The Son was obedient to the Father in all things. We are also to be obedient to the Father in all things. So often we revert to our sinful ways of self-indulgence rather than obedience to the great love the Father has for us. He indwells us with His Holy Spirit to empower us in His love. Let us avail ourselves of that power.
