Part of a Forever Family
Read Galatians 4:1 through 6:18
In the late forties, Judy and her twelve brothers and sisters were taken from their parents and placed in an orphanage. Later, at the age of six, Judy was sent to a foster home, where she was mistreated. She slept on a pile of rags on an enclosed back porch. She was only allowed into the house to wash dishes or mop the floor. Eventually, a woman became aware of the situation, and she and her husband adopted Judy.
At first, the abuse Judy had experienced in the foster home made it difficult for her to believe this would be her permanent home and this loving couple would be her parents. But the love and faithful witness of Christian parents soon convinced Judy she was there to stay.
When Judy became older, she asked Jesus Christ to be her Lord and Savior. She found her forever family.
So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir (Galatians 4:7).
Membership in God’s family is available to all who will accept Jesus’ offer of salvation.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, thank You for adopting me and making me part of Your family.
