Reading in Ephesians this morning about our adoption into the family of God through faith in Jesus Christ, I was struck by the word. Then I thought about all the wonderful families who adopt children who need a loving home. What a special love!
When I think about the love a man and woman has for the child they have adopted, the way they look at that child as their very own, the same as a biological child, I am reminded that God looks at us that way too!
Because of Jesus Christ, we are made righteous, justified, sanctified, and redeemed–out of the darkness of sin and into the fullness of the light of truth!
