  1. Galatians 3:26-29
    For ye are all the children of God By Faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ, have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    Romans 8:15-17
    For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs;heirs of God and Joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified together.

  2. I love this for it says we are not kind of His but we are all His in every single way !!
    We are set apart from this world and it is up to us to make sure we continue to remove the world and its ways from us. We are royalty and we are blessed and we hasve His life in abundance. Praise God

  4. The word "adoption" is made up of two words. "Ad" which means "to", and then the word "option" which means, "choose". Together they mean "to choose". We were chosen to be his from the beginning.

    We really are God's offspring as God provided the "seed", (Word of God) and the Holy Spirit brought us "life" in causing it to be birthed!!

  5. Thank you for breaking down the meaning of adoption.

    This sheds a new light to that word(at least for me). Often the word carries a negative connotation with it. But this shows it in it's true positive light...we were chosen! That makes it special.
