We are His adopted children

God wants us as His holy children. That was His plan for us even before the world began. God paid the huge price, the sacrifice of His Son Jesus, for our adoption into His family. God's motive in doing this? His desire and delight in loving us.

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.
— Ephesians 1:4-5

Dear Lord our words cannot adequately express our thanks for your love and grace. We are honored to be one of your adopted children and want to bring you joy in the way we live. Forgive us for the times we have disappointed you by not living up to what you desire of us. We want our life to be a holy thanksgiving to you for your grace. In Jesus' name, Amen.
