Adoption as a Picture of the Church

Adoption is a beautiful picture of the Gospel.
It is also a beautiful picture of the Church.
Those who were once separated and having no claim to relationship are now made family.
Those who apart from adoption would have little in common now share the same heritage and together are creating a new one.
Those who the world would make enemies are now fathers and sons.
Those who would be separated not only by geography but historic prejudice are now brothers and sisters.
Those who would be indifferent to one another at best are bound by indescribable love.

Read Ephesians 2:14-21
