A Daily Word - Nov. 28, 2010


You may have never noticed it, but the classified sections of most big city newspapers have a section called "Adoptions." It does not announce who has been adopted, but who wants to adopt. Couples who do not have children advertise to pregnant women who may be considering giving their child away. Listen to these entries:

"California doctor-dad, at-home mom wish to adopt newborn. Will provide love, security, and opportunity. Call Steve and Elaine."

And another one: "Desire baby to adopt. Outdoorsman dad, stay-at-home mom, one crazy dog, wish to provide love and financial security and a great home to your newborn."

Then this one: "Adoption. Joan, a Texas elementary art teacher. David, a successful professional, wish to adopt your baby and provide a wonderful life filled with love and stability. Will share photos through the years. Please call."

Do these pleas touch your heart the way they do mine?

God is in the adoption business. He has an ad in His paper for people like you and me, and for all who are away from Him, pleasure-seekers included. It goes something like this: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne." (Revelation 3:20-21)

It promises not temporary gratification, but lasting joy. It promises a place with Jesus, in whose presence is the fullness of joy, and in whose right hand are pleasures forever.


Galatians 4:4-5

God sent forth His order that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. 


Luke 19; Revelation 13
