EXPLORING GOD’S WORD [10]

The topic of our exploration is ADOPTED BY GOD.  Turn in your Bible to the passages shared and mark the keywords or phrases that stand out to you.

Isaiah 43:I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; 63:For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour. [He calls the children from around the earth to come according to His will.]

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [God calls out to the lost to come and they must decide to answer yes and come or no and run into destruction.]

Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

2 Cor.6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. [ God invites the lost caught up in the worldly to come out and He will protect the lost sheep.]

Gal.3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. [In Christ alone by faith alone][ Read Gal.4:6 ]

Eph. 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; [Blessed assurance]

Hebrews 12:Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? [ when we are in God’s hands we are safe and secure from alarm.]

FALL DAYS

fall1

September, September,

almost gone,

with it’s weather changes,

warm days,

frost at dawn,

leaves once their greens,

now changing,

to oranges, yellows,

reds and golds.

Fall days,

become lazy days,

to relax and enjoy,

so I am told;

I am looking,

at the multi-colored,

beautiful hillsides,

from my lazy boy,

so wonderful these fall days,

God gave us to enjoy.
