The Grace of Adoption
Ephesians 1:5 and 6 says that God "predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of His glorious grace, with which he blessed us in the Beloved."
If we have been saved by God through Jesus, it's because he chose to adopt us to be His children.
Tomorrow my sister and her husband (Jason and Janelle Johnson) are following through on a choice they made to adopt four children from Minneapolis. This is truly a human redemption story. We pray that it will truly result in a spiritual redemption story as well.
Please pray for Jason and Janelle as they are excited about officially bringing in Katie (6), Preston (5), Paul (5) and Anna (3) into their family and make them their own children. The four kids are all biologically brothers and sisters.
