Adopted Into God's Family

Hi there and welcome to this week’s Devotional Moments. How’s your memory verses going? My memory isn’t great but I’m certainly giving it a go. The first memory verse is “everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God” from 1 John 5:1. This week’s memory verse is “If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God” (1 John 4:15). Jesus is the Son of God.

Those of you who heard Robbie’s sermon last Sunday or on YouTube, heard him talk about the various heresies of the days that denied that Jesus was God’s Son and how even today various religious groups continue to deny this truth that Jesus is the Son of God.

The Apostle Paul wrote what the Sonship of Jesus Christ means for us. In a very cool passage in Galatians 4 verses 4 and 5, Paul tells us “But when the right time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent Him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as His very own children” (Galatians 4:4-5 NLT).
