1. Adoption is the process by which all of us came to be a part of Christ’s family.
The Lord adopted us as his very own and we feel accepted as part of the Lord’s own family. Adoption is therefore a very deep Christian practice which should not be seen as strange or unacceptable. The following verses show us how we were adopted into the Lord’s family.
...I was a stranger and you took me in:
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage...but ye have received the spirit of adoption whereby we cry Abba Father.
...accepted in the beloved.
