Living Relational Organism 09-22-2018

What is the purpose of the church? This is a question I have thought of before and as I reflect, I realize that the question should be stated, what is the purpose of our church or better yet, What is the purpose of our PTC SDA church? To find the answer to this question we are required to dive deeper within and find the core of what makes us who we are. Because in order for our church to continue its existence, we must find what is the energy behind what we do and what makes us unique.

Abba, Father 06-02-2018

“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” – Ephesians 1:5

Jefferson Bethke writes, “There are a few states in the United States that have adoption laws and protections specifically for kids who’ve been adopted and their adoptive parent dies. When a parent writes a will, they can later on write their biological child out of the will, but if it’s an adopted child, they cannot. The state actually gives more protection and security to the adopted child. This is a beautiful picture of us with God.”
