Thought For The Day by Al Boulden

Galatians 4:4-5 “But when a set time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.”
 
God’s plan…He planned to defeat evil and redeem His Chosen People at a particular time. Prophecy told that a Suffering Savior would be born of a virgin in Bethlehem; be raised in Nazareth; that He would live a perfect life and willingly die for the sins of the world. Jesus is that Savior, and we who surrender to Him are adopted sons of the Father. Being born into a loving family is special, but being adopted into a family is equally, perhaps even more special. Parents choose the child. It is a conscious decision. God chose us. We are redeemed and sealed into God’s family for eternity!
 
Lord, thank You for redemption through grace. We marvel at the adoptive state of eternity, members of Your family. Strengthen us to live worthy of Your Name. Praise You Father!
 
Praise God for adoption today.
