The theme of our Christmas program this year was adoption.
Maybe it seems like a funny theme for a Christmas program.
Christ's birth at Christmas allows us to be adopted into the family of God.
If Christ hadn't come as a baby that first Christmas, we couldn't be saved.
He wouldn't have died for our sins.
He wouldn't have given up heaven to save us.
He wouldn't have completed God's plan for our salvation.
BUT HE DID!
He saved us!
He gave us the chance to be adopted into the family of God.
Adopted. God's child. A miracle for our live.
We are saved!
Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
