Understanding whose you are is an important facet of identity formation. You, our dear sister, have been adopted as you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior. Let’s look to the Word:
Understanding that we are adopted, grafted into the love and promises of God through Jesus Christ is important to our identity as daughters of God! No longer do we have to search to belong-we belong to the Father! No longer do we have to pursue the love of people-we are loved by God Almighty!
This aspect of our identity provides us with a greater knowledge of our worth. Knowing that the Lord sent His only Son to die on the cross for our sins helps us operate in this world that defines worth by income and outer beauty.
Sister, you don’t have to wonder about your worth anymore. No longer do you have to fight for attention. You have the Creator of the Universe as your Father-the only one who knows you in and out.
Abandoned by your father? Trust in the Ultimate Father! Left by your mother? The Lord is here to mend that brokenness. Betrayed by your friend? You are now apart of the family of the One who sticks closer than a brother!
You have been adopted-permanently, for all of eternity, never to be left again. Hallelujah!
Peace and Blessings
