Our faith guides our life. Chad and I do not believe that adoption is a good work that will lead to our salvation. We know that we are already saved from our sins because of our faith in Jesus. Our obedience follows our salvation. We are obedient because we love Him. I hope this provides some insight into why are family seems a bit different. Well, probably a lot different. We have chosen to live our life following Jesus and His plan for us. This path seems crazy and unconventional but it is the only path for us.
Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.
