Get Adopted into the Family of God

Description

Once we’re in God’s family, we won’t ever be kicked out!

For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ in accordance with His pleasure and will (Ephesians 1:4-5).

THINK

When we become followers of Jesus Christ, the Bible tells us that we are adopted into the family of God. That concept of adoption is huge! In biblical times, an adopted son or daughter could not be disowned, while a biological child could.

What that tells you and me today is that no matter who we are, where we’re from or what we’ve done, God has chosen us to be in His family. And He loves us so much that there is nothing we can do to cause Him to love us more or less. Once we’re in God’s family, we won’t ever, ever be kicked out!

PRAY

Thank God for His unfathomable, unconditional and unending love in your life. Ask Him for the ability to show that same kind of love to others.

ACT

The greatest act of love is sharing your source of hope. Think of one person in your life who needs the same hope you have. Be intentional today about inviting him or her to attend church with you this weekend.
