When you hear “adoption”

Remember to pray for the Irish’s during their time visiting Enoch and Moise in Haiti. Pray for physical and (Holy) Spiritual strength for them as they patiently endure the adoption process. And as you think about adoption thank our Heavenly Father for adopting us (Ephesians 1:5) into his Family through our elder Brother, Jesus (Hebrews 2:11-13). How beautiful is it when God’s children overflow in love for others, how striking it is when God’s children overflow in love for the orphan!

If you’re interested in finding out more about how the gospel might lead others to adopt please check out these amazing ministries…

And here’s a wonderful quote from Dan Cruver, writing for the Together for Adoption website:

Everybody has dreams.

One of my dreams is that when Christians hear the word “adoption,” they will first think about their adoption by God. As it stands right now, most of us first think of families adopting children.

My dream, then, is that whenever the word “adoption” is spoken, our thoughts will move vertically (e.g., “God has adopted us”) before they move horizontally (e.g., “Our church has many families that are adopting”).
