You're Adopted


Your "baptismal certificate" might as well become your adoption papers into God's kingdom! Fatherless, single, or an only child, you are now part of the family of believers!

You’ve heard of dual citizenship, in which a person actually carries two passports? Did you know that you hold dual family membership?

The Bible says that your baptism actually represents a moment in which God the Father publicly claimed you and accepted a lifelong obligation to do for you what good fathers do for children they love. I guess that makes your baptismal certificate your adoption papers: “You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ” (Galatians 3:26,27).

This is great news, especially for people whose own earthly families are missing some pieces. If your biological father was missing in your life or is deceased, you are not fatherless anymore. If you are an only child, guess what? Your adopted family is huge, and you’re connected to them all. If you are single and longing for a feeling of belonging and connection, Christ your Savior loves to compare Himself to a bridegroom. You’re engaged! The wedding feast is coming soon.

God is proud publicly to call you his daughter or his son. May I invite you to be just as proud to call him your Father?
