Winter SWO: The Why and the How of Adoption
Brody Holloway : Ephesians 1 : Winter SWO : January 19, 2019
When we look at the Ephesians 1:4-6 we are able to see what we receive through our spiritual our adoption: new name, new address, new clothes, a bed, and a place at the table in the Kingdom of God.
We were adopted because of His love and will, and for His purpose. We were bought with the blood of Jesus. God reveals His will and plans for us. He alone gives us understanding and peace. All things will one day be made right. Justice will come. Even now, we can experience the justice and righteousness of God in our lives in spite of a broken world.
God gives us His Holy Spirit as a promise, ensuring our future. The Holy Spirit literally breathes life into the Christian. Every day, we live by His power and with His wisdom and might.
