A very close couple to Heather and I have four beautiful adopted children, three girls and a boy.  Each child was adopted separate from another country, with very little earthly possessions, or hope for a fulfilling and meaningful future.   This wonderful couple made these children their own.  Each child has all the rights, privileges, protection, provisions and even expectations of someone born into this family.  They will grow up knowing nothing but the unconditional support and love of this husband and wife, regardless of their parents of birth, or nationality.

As Christians we have gone through the same process.  We were not naturally born of Christ.  Our hope and expectation for a peaceful and fulfilling future were not, prior to our conversion.  We were destined for slavery and a life of wondering.  But through Christ we have been chosen and adopted into His family.  With full rights, privileges, protection, provisions and yes, even expectations of the heavenly family.  God called us and we are His.  What a blessing it is to be adopted by the Father.

2 Corinthians 6:18, "And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me, says the Lord Almighty."
