We Are Not God’s Foster Children

To paraphrase Ephesians 1:5, “We’ve been adopted as God’s children.”

Adoption is a legal procedure which secures a child’s identity in a new family. God didn’t choose to be our FOSTER parent. We don’t get kicked out of the family because of our behavior.  In His infinite kindness, God made us a permanent part of His family. Nothing can undo the legal procedure that binds me to Christ. He died to redeem me. He signed the adoption papers with His blood!
