Influencer Explores What It Means to Be Adopted Into the Family of God

By Movieguide® Contributor

So many people in the world today have a hole in their heart whether it be from a relationship that ended, an absentee parent or simply being alone.

In an Instagram post by an up-and-coming influencer, Katie, who’s primarily known for her IKEA highchair creations, described what it means to be adopted into the family of Christ.

“What does it mean to be adopted? It means forever belonging,” she began to write. “It means knowing you won’t be rejected, you have someone who won’t give up on you. It means being accepted, loved, cherished, chosen.”

Katie and her husband, Brent, understand this concept of adoption more because they have adopted a child of their own.

“Having an adopted child has given our whole family a deep understanding of what it means to be adopted into God’s family,” Katie wrote. “When you are adopted, you carry the family name, and nothing can take that away. There’s not one person on earth that God doesn’t want to adopt. He created you with joy and much thought, wanting nothing more than for you to receive His love.”

The only way to fill that hole is through Jesus.

“If this is hitting something in you, maybe it’s a realization that this sense of belonging is exactly what your heart has been yearning for,” she explained. “When you believe Jesus is your God and Savior, the adoption papers are signed in permanent ink. And if you’ve already chosen to be a child of God, but lies of unworthiness are creeping in, look the enemy right in the face and confidently sing your adoption song. You don’t have to work to measure up, because Jesus already did the work for you.”

Katie concluded the post with the Bible verse, Romans 8:15-16, which reads:

15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
