Why God chose you! And adopted us into his family.

 

Good morning and welcome to the house of worship where God is with all of you in our heart and in this place of worship. Where we can honor and cherish the fact that we have been chosen to be a child of God. He loves each and every one of us no matter what we look like inside and out. God made us this way for a reason and takes care of us even when we hadn’t accepted Jesus into our hearts.

 

Dear Heavenly Father We thank you for this opportunity to gather here in your House of worship where we can all have a wonderful feeling of your presence knowing that we all belong to the greatest family of all. Your family! Where you love us unconditionally whether we have accepted you into our hearts. But if there is anyone in this congregation today that would like to accept Jesus Christ into his or her hearts. Raise your hands for Jesus. And ask him to forgive you for your sins. And you will be accepted into the most wonderful family of all Gods Family because he chose you to come here today to chosen to join the greatest family of all. Amen

 

"And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 13bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.   14And beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.  15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.  17And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father,"

(Colossians 3:12-17)

When I was young about three years old. I and my other three siblings were all put in different foster homes after we were all taken from our birth parents because of neglect.  I was in a foster home all by my self with other foster siblings then I was moved to another home all by my self. And during that time I was able to visit my two sisters whom I had no recollection that they were my sisters. I even had a little baby brother I did not even know I even had at that time. But God knew all about us cause he chose me and my siblings to be adopted all together. Into one family one Large family of 6 other brothers and sisters. Our new Parents to be loved us right from the first visit. Cause I do remember going for a car ride with my new Mom and Dad to be. And in the beginning my new Mom ad Dad to be were thinking about adopting only one or two kids. The adoption agency told them there were two boys and two girls all brothers and sisters. And after Mom and Dad met each one of us they said they wanted all four of us. Just like God chose us all because we are all one special package.  We are all Gods children.

After we were adopted we were immediately introduced to Gods church where I remember going to Sunday school where we would praise and worship God for a bit then we would all break to our own individual class rooms for class to learn about our greatest Father of all.  I also learned when I was a young child this bible verse that always stuck in my mind which I am trying to teach my Daughter Tiana. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16. We were chosen and adopted into his family.

 

During our Offertory here is a song by John Mark Mc Millian How He Loves Us

 

He is jealous for me
Loves like a hurricane
I am a tree bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
I realize just how beautiful You are and how great Your affections are for me.

And oh how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us
How He loves us so.
[x2]

[Chorus]
Yeah He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves
[x2]

We are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes.
If grace is an ocean we're all sinking.
So heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest.
I don't have time to make take these regrets when I think about
The way...

[Chorus]
Yeah He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves
[x2]

Yeah yeah!

Hey yeah [x7]


 

 

 

[Chorus]
Yeah He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves

Yeah He loves us
He loves us
He loves us

[Chorus]
Yeah He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves
[x2]

His love is goin' deep
His love is goin' deep tonight [x2]
See the Father
Behold the Father [x2]

 

Dear heavenly Father thank you for choosing us to be adopted into your family and to know that we have an awesome Father that loves us unconditionally from the moment we were conceived to this moment that we are gathered here to honor your Glory and to honor Jesus who died on the cross to be covered with our sins. So that we may have everlasting life. And to be able to join our father one day in his Holy City that awaits us one day Amen

 

 

Eph. 3:17-19 - (May) Christ dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Go in peace and spread the word of how you were chosen by God to be adopted  in to the greatest family of all .
