Adopted in God's Family


"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holly and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved."
Ephesians 1:3-6

God doesn't say only these people are my children, no he says we are adopted children through Christ.  We are born again into a family of God.  As someone who is adopted, I love reading scripture like this.  It says to me that no matter what, I have a family.  I am apart of, chosen!
