Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will. Ephesians 1:5 (NKJV)
Children are blessings to their family. Their place in the family is secured by birth. But adopted children have a special relationship with their parents. They are chosen by their parents to become part of the family.
God chose us to become part of His family. He looked forward to you becoming part of His family. We get to enjoy the benefits of being part of God’s family, but sometimes we may endure hardships. All families have joys and sorrows. But we have a big family (the body of Christ – also known as the church) to help get us through rough situations. And best of all, Jesus has paid the price so we can overcome any trouble we face. If you want to become part of the family of God, click here.
And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering. Romans 8:17 (NLT)
