All Christians have been adopted as children of God and freed from the law. To adopt a child is to follow the lead of God who has adopted so many. There are several examples of adoption in the Bible including Moses. Adoption of children is a wonderful thing and God directs us to take care of the children and welcome them in. There is no better way to welcome a child in then to adopt him or her.

“But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name—

Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!]” John 1:12-13 Amplified
