Almighty God, the Maker and Creator of all things seen and unseen, I Am that I Am, has a title of preference for His children who call upon Him–what is it? “Father!”Even before creation, our Father had a plan of redemption which would lead to our adoptions. Ephesians 1:3-8 describes it well: “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace He has poured out on us who belong to His dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins. He has showered His kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.” (NLT) Once spiritual orphans, God sought us, bought us, and has adopted us into His beloved Family. He has made us joint heirs through His Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. How awesome is our God! How awesome is our Father!
