No matter how grand or beautiful your description was in Step 8, it does not begin to capture the reality of what it means to be adopted by God as His child.
Most of us will not know the overwhelming beauty and pleasure of this reality until we meet God face to face.
For now, it is important to understand that, even if you do not see or feel any evidence of it, you are a child of God.
You are a child of a Father who loves you more deeply and completely than you will ever know. Who cares for you and is available to you at any time, for any reason. Who will, no matter what your circumstances may be telling you, never fail, leave, forget or abandon you. A Father who sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to sacrifice His life for the payment of your sins.
Your adoption as a child of God is another big piece of the Gospel.
How much does the possibility that God, your Father, deeply loves and cherishes you, mean to you at this time?
