Our country is a place of broken homes, and with broken homes come broken hearts and broken people. Have you ever felt alone, unwanted, or disregarded? These verses are for you:
“Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.” Gal. 4:7
“Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the riches of His grace.” Eph. 1:4-5
“I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.” 2 Cor. 6:18
God wants you. When earthly parents don’t, God does. When people turn their backs on you, God won’t. God made a way available so that He could adopt us, and that way is Jesus. When we come in contact with Jesus’ blood, we become adopted sons and daughters of God. You know the great thing about adoption? It takes planning. It takes a desire. It takes love. It takes motivation.
We’re all sinners. We all separated ourselves from God. But God loves us anyway. God sent His Son to die so that all of the things that separate us could be taken away. When other people don’t want you, don’t get too down. The God and Creator of the universe wants you. You ARE special. You ARE important. You ARE loved.
