Adopted By God

When we come to Christ, God not only forgives us, he also adopts us. Through a dramatic series of events, we go from condemned orphans with no hope to adopted children with no fear. Here is how it happens. You come before the judgment seat of God full of rebellion and mistakes. Because of his justice he cannot dismiss your sin, but becasue of his love he cannot dismiss you. So, in an act which stunned the heavens, he punished himself on the cross for your sins. God's justice and love are equally honored. And you, God's creation, are forgiven. But the story doesn't end with God's forgiveness.....It would be enough if God just cleansed your name, but he does more. He gives you his name.

-The Great House of God

What a perfect illustration.
We used Dillon for our homestudy (they have a local agency here in CA). But we've used Dillon Southwest in AZ for our main agency both times. I am simply in awe as to how fast this has been taking place. We are hoping to submit all the placement paperwork by Tuesday. I'm not ready to post pictures or her name yet on my blog.
I have been thoroughly impressed with Dillon. I hope you are having a wonderful experience. Will you travel to Korea?
