So thankful to be adopted

As we watch the babies around us growing, we take delight in every milestone....the first tooth, first word, beginning to crawl, and so on. However, we know as exciting as those milestones are, they are just stepping stones to the next marker...walking, new words, and on to school days, graduations and perhaps marriage. If growth doesn't continue, there is cause for concern.

How our Father must delight as His children begin to grow, as well. However, that growth process is supposed to continue as well. We are commanded to mature in our faith, to cry out for spiritual nourishment, and to grow in our knowledge of our Lord and Savior.

Just as our earthly children are still our children, no matter how old they get...nothing will cut the bond we have with our Heavenly Father, either. John 10:28b tells us that no one will snatch us out of His hand. He loves us with an eternal love--so strong that He died so that relationship could happen. We can be adopted, we are chosen. And all we have to do is believe and say yes. Wow.
