Do you know what it’s like to be adopted?
Ron: Do you know what it’s like to be adopted?
Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.
Ron: Some of you do. Most, like me, don’t have any idea. Or maybe, in one sense, we do. Romans 8 reminds us that sin made us outsiders with God but that through Christ God has adopted us as His children. Now what would happen if we all passed this on? If we opened our heart to an outsider and invited them in?
A lonely kid on the playground would have a friend. A new family member would be treated as if they belong. Someone of a different color would be welcome in your living room. And a newcomer to church would receive five invitations to lunch. We’re all adopted. Let’s adopt. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
