Adopted Into The Family (Thirty Second Devotional)
When I was a teenager I knew a boy that was adopted, and he would be the first to tell you who his mother and father were. There was no doubt in his mind when he looked at them. He was loved and he knew it. He was just as much a part of the family as their other child who was not adopted. We are adopted into the family of God in the same way. We were not born into the family, but are adopted, and our Father loves us.
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
Have you been adopted into God's family? Are you joint heirs with Christ? Ask him into your heart today. He loves you and is waiting to welcome you with open arms.
