“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:5 NLT
When people decide to adopt a child, they usually do so because there is an abundance of love in their home they want to share with others. It is not a decision they come by lightly. They go through a process to decide if they want to take on the additional responsibility and lifelong commitment.
God chose before you were born to adopt you. He is love, and you were created out of the abundance of his love. You were created so he could love you. He wanted to create you and was thrilled to do so. You were created to be loved.
Prayer: God, thank you for loving me. Thank you for adopting me into your family. Help me to show your love to others I meet today. In Jesus name. Amen.
