DAY 2 FAMILY: ADOPTED

Adoption is a thing of beauty and is a primary description of salvation in Scripture. Those who believe on Jesus are adopted into God’s forever family, and immeasurable blessings come with this undeserved position. Galatians 4:4-7 states, “…God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba, Father! ” So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.” Only God’s children have the privilege of crying out “Daddy” to the Creator of the Universe. Only God’s children can relate with the Sovereign God as a Father and not as a task master. Only God’s children will inherit eternal life with Him because Jesus’ sacrifice purchased it through the Cross. We are no longer slaves to religion or rebellion, but sons and daughters of the one true God. So when we pray, it’s personal and powerful. We can cry out to our all-powerful, all-present, all-knowing Daddy. Take time to do that right now. He invites it.
