I love adoption because it is so closely related to what Christ did with us on the Cross. Jesus bought our souls with his precious blood on Calvary. It is terrifying to have no father or a wicked abuser as a father (like the Devil)...but do not be afraid....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. - Romans 8:15
This is a beautiful clip of a beautiful family who adopted some very special kids
Adoption Costs:...but it has eternal value. It wasn't easy for Him to do this, but He did. Jesus redeemed us, bought us and made us His children.
"For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's". I Cor. 6:20
"To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons." - Gal 4:5
It gives the protection of a GOOD God/Father who loves and cares for us, it gives us a home in heaven and it gives us hope for the future.
What an example for us. This is why we too, should favor adoption - rejoicing in the present
