ADOPTION

Devotional for Friday, January 14, 2022


Morning 1 John 1:1-3

Noon Psalm 3

Evening Galatians 4:4-7


The term adoption comes from a Greek word that means "to set as a son." In biblical times, it had two meanings: the private act of welcoming a stranger into the family as a son; and the public, legal and ceremonial act of recognizing the son as the heir. Until this ceremony was performed, there was really very little difference between the son and the servants in the home.

Adoption does not refer to our relationship with God, but to our position before God. Adoption is the act whereby, after having been justified by faith in Christ, we are received into the family of God and reinstated as children to enjoy the privileges and responsibilities of that position. Adoption has only one condition—to be in Christ.

The blessings that come from being adopted into the family of God are many and worthy of being desired. Once adopted, we can enjoy the following benefits: being the object of God's paternal care; having the family name, likeness, and love; receiving the paternal punishment that proves that we are true children; receiving comfort and an inheritance from the Father. What love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God!

Morning 1 John 1:1-3

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.


Noon Psalm 3

1 Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.

2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.

3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.

5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.

6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.

7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.


Evening Galatians 4:4-7

4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
