Christians! We are Adopted!

Who are God‘s children? Spiritual birth makes someone a child of God.
“To all who received 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

God offers us the opportunity to be His children.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.” I John 3:1, NIV

Christians are adopted into God’s family.
“The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.” Romans 8:16, NIV
“But when the time had fully come, God sent forth His Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.” Galatians 4:4-5, RSV

Take a lesson from the children.
“Then Jesus called the children over to Him and said to the disciples, ‘Let the little children come to me! Never send them away! For the Kingdom of God belongs to men who have hearts as trusting as these little children’s. And anyone who doesn’t have their kind of faith will never get within the Kingdom’s gates.” Luke 18:16-17, TLB5

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

-Romans 8:15^17.

Please see who you are and who God sees you as and adjust your life accordingly….
