So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. – Galatians 3:26-27
Jesus is God’s only son, so how are the rest of us His “family”? In what way are we God’s children?
God chooses to adopt us. When we believe in Him, we become His children though a loving act of His will. Adoption means we are exactly like sons and daughters to Him. He created us, formed us with His artistry and power, and put His own breath within us. All of us are related to God as our creator. But He choses to make that relationship more affectionate and intimate. He wanted us to have all the benefits and honors of being His children, and He truly being our Father.
When we put our faith in Jesus Christ, the Creator of all things embraces us as His own children. We are constantly looked after, cared for, and protected. More than that, we are loved beyond what we can even imagine by the most loving of Fathers!
