Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: October 5, 2016

We parents understand God’s resolve.  When our children stumble, we do not disown them.  When they fall, we do not dismiss them.  We may punish or reprimand, but cast them out of the family?  We cannot.  They are biologically connected to us.  Those born with our DNA will die with it.

God, our Father, engenders the same relationship with us.  Upon salvation we “become children of God” (John 1:12 NKJV).  He alters our lineage, redefines our spiritual parenthood, and, in doing so, secures our salvation.
