Adopted by God – Episode 2



Adoption stories are amazing!  Paperwork, travel, money, and then a child!  This child becomes a member or a new family. They receive a new name and new relationships.  When you believe on Jesus, God adopts you and makes you a member of His family.

When God adopts you, He does three things: He gives you a new nature. He gives you a new name.  He gives you a new relationship.

New Nature

Romans 8:12-15

When you trusted in Christ, God gave you a new nature.  This new nature gives you power over sin.

2 Peter 1:3-4

God gave you everything you need to live this life in a godly way.  Believers are a partaker of the divine nature.  The believer now has power over sin.

New Name

God has given all believers a new name.  That new name is “a child of God.”

Romans 8:16-17

All humans are NOT children of God.  Only those that believe on Jesus receive this new name.  Please see John 1:12-13

New Relationship

God also gave you a new relationship.  Believers have an intimate relationship with The Heavenly Father – God is now your daddy.  You can now approach God in boldness.

Finally, God will never leave you nor forsake you.  This relationship is eternal.
