I’ve known a few people in my life who were adopted as children and the longing of their hearts was always to meet their real biological parents.
Everyone wants to know where they came from. That’s a common desire.
As a Christian, have you ever asked yourself where you came from? And why was it that God chose you to be in his family?
Let me start by saying that it had nothing to do with you!
Once upon a time, before the world was made, God decided to give his Son a people as a gift.
Those people were known only to God before they were ever created.
These people had one common purpose: they would glorify God by imaging the Son.
If you have faith in Christ today, you are one of those people.
God chose you.
God drew you to Christ.
God clothed you in Christ.
For the purpose of being holy and blameless.
It was God’s love to his Son that he adopted us into his family for the glory of his grace.
The fact you love the Lord and believe in him was all God’s plan for you.
Check it out. Read Ephesians chapter 1.
