Word 4 Today April 18, 2011

ADOPTION

Here’s a deal you can’t afford to pass up.  Remember yesterdays daily, The Free Gift?  Do you know what happened when you received that gift?  Oh my, let me tell you.

1.   You were able to give up a life of insecurity, worry and doubt.

2.   You left a life full of misery, pain and suffering.

3.   You got a new lease on life, a fresh start, a new beginning.

4.   You were adopted into the family and now God is your Father.

5.   Your name was written in the Lambs Book Of Life.

6.   You were sealed with the Holy Spirit, God’s permanent mark on your life.

7.   You received His love, power, protection, contentment and joy in this life.

8.   You received the promise of everlasting life with Him in heaven.

9.   You have been given the opportunity to share His love with others.

10. You now have a sense of purpose and promise.

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out “Abba, Father.”  The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. Romans 8:15-16

PRAYER 4 TODAY

WOW!  The mere fact that I may call you Father is beyond my comprehension. The God of the universe is now my Father.  Adopted into the family, joint heirs with Christ.  What an awesome privilege it is to now know who I am in You. Thank You for allowing me to place my confidence, trust and eternal assurance in You.  Thank You Father.
