The video for Third Day's song "Children of God" captures the beauty and reality of adoption better than just about anything I have ever seen. Whether or not you have ever considered if adoption is right for your family, you can't avoid the fact that each of us has been adopted by a holy God. For many who are choosing to adopt (particularly those who already have biological children), their choice is a natural response to the unconditional love and acceptance they themselves have received from God.
Enjoy the video...but be sure to stick around for the end. There is a way-cool "hook" in the last minute or so.
3All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. 6So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. 7He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. 8He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
~Ephesians 1: 3-8
