The foundation of our identity in Christ is our adoption into the family of God. No matter what family you came from or what your mom and dad thought of you—by faith in Jesus, you become an adopted and beloved son or daughter of God. When that truth is hard to believe, the Spirit takes the witness stand for us and helps us cry, “Abba, Father.” Jesus fulfills our longing to find our true home and our true family. In Christ, you are a child of God.
