We have in a few days been looking at verses from the Bible about the adoption of Saints into the Family of God; We will continue to do that today my friends. John writes in John 11:52–And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Saints are gathered together into one family by Christ!  The question is how can one be adopted into the family of God? It Is recorded in John 1:12-13–

12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. By receiving the gift of the new birth offered by Jesus we are adopted into the Family of God! The Apostle Paul writes in Romans 8:16 that the Holy Spirit witnesses our adoption. Note Verse 17,We are not only adopted but made joint heirs with Christ! What is Christ’s is ours! We show that we are His adopted children by following the leading of the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:14.  [ to be continued ]
