Ephesians 3:17-19
17 May [Jesus] Christ through your faith actually dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people], the experience of that love, what is the breadth and length and height and depth of it; 19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of [Jesus] Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [that you may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a person wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

1 John 3:1-2
1 See what [an incredible] quality of love the Father [God] has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him. 2 Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God’s children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is.

John 1:12-13
12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him [Jesus], He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name— 13 Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!]

Romans 8:14-16
14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father! 16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God.

Galatians 4:6 6 And because you [really] are [His] sons, God has sent the [Holy] Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba (Father)! Father!

Imagine for a moment that you are an orphan who has languished at the orphanage for 12 heartbreaking, long years.

Many, many couples have come to the orphanage, looked at you, and then passed by you to choose the child standing beside you. Each time another couple passes by, you feel the sting of rejection.

After all this time, you’ve accepted the fact that you would not be chosen. You would not be selected. You don’t know why you are rejected each time, but you are.

Then, an incredibly rich king strolls into the orphanage.

Not only can you tell that he is exceedingly wealthy, but somehow you can sense that he is also a man of extreme integrity and excellence of character.

He walks by all the other orphans, determined, and he walks directly to you. He chooses you.

He does everything necessary, not only to rescue you from the orphanage, but to adopt you as his own child.

In other words, the rich-in-all-aspects king names himself your father.

From the moment of your adoption, when others ask the king about you, he doesn’t mention where he first met you. He doesn’t mention that he didn’t meet you at your birth.

He proudly tells others that you are his child. He names himself your father as if his blood was flowing in your veins.

From the moment of your adoption, you are an equal heir with his other children.

You share equally with them in all his wealth, all his possessions, and, even better, you have your very own place in your father’s heart.

Reread these verses from the Bible and evaluate how much of this imagined story actually reflects your own story.

Romans 8:38-39
38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
