The Lord has led us to adopt in two main ways. First, he has shown us how adoption is a picture of the gospel. In Galatians 4:4-5, Paul explains that God sent his son to redeem us “so that we might receive adoption as sons.” This realization that we are God’s children and receive an inheritance of eternal life through adoption was monumental for us. Now, when we talk about adoption we not only think of it as a way to help a child in need, but as a picture of the very thing that God did for us.
A second way the Lord has led us to adoption is the simple command in scripture that the church should care for widows and orphans. James 1:27 states, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” The Lord commands the church to do these things, so why not us? The Lord has blessed us with a healthy family, comfortable home, and financial security. The Lord gave us the ability and desire to adopt, so we wanted to joyfully pursue the Lord’s calling.
