He Intentionally Chose Us

Today’s Daily Devotion

I believe no one is adopted by accident. Taking on the responsibility for adoption requires a weighty decision, a significant expense, and a long-term commitment. The process of legal adoption itself is tedious, time consuming, and can be costly.

God did not adopt us by accident. He intentionally chose us. In the NLT version, it says, “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ.” Despite our lack of knowledge about Him, prior to our realization of the need for Him in our lives, and before our decision to love Him, He had already chosen us and loved us. He chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in love before him (Ephesians 1:4).

God adopted us with great pleasure. He wanted us to be part of His family, so He sent His Son. Incredibly, as God’s adopted children, we share in the same inheritance as Christ! This has been God’s plan all along. He loves us with purposeful intention and planning.

In love He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will…”
Ephesians 1:5

Let us keep our hearts focused on Jesus.
