Adoption in Action—The Real Stories.

It’s one thing to read a book. It’s another thing to see how God works through a book to mobilize the church into action. Thanks for joining us for a few adoption stories this week!

If you’re interested in hearing more, check these videos out on Vimeo:

  • Josh and Jen Fillpot’s story: “Adoption is not just some charitable thing we do, but adoption is war. We are fighting against principalities and powers and rulers of this darkness. By adopting we are saying that Christ is greater, and Christ will conquer, we can be adopted into his family, and have eternal life.”
  • Adam and Andi Greg’s story: “What lead us to become foster parents was in the local newspaper…they ran a story about how the state of Kentucky led the nation in children that were neglected and abused and that just really struck my heart. To bring a child out of poverty into relative prosperity is not enough for the church of Jesus Christ.”
  • John-Mark and Karen Hutcheson’s Story: “It was [Adopted for Life] a real example for me of a family that walked through the adoption process with Christ being the focal point of adoption.”
  • Ken and Sarah Lovett’s Story: “Adoption is a clear picture of the gospel.”

Adoption, God’s Provision, and the Gospel

In Adopted for Life, author Russell Moore did more than just communicate information about adoption. His book is a commission to churches and believers to be more than spectators. It’s a great-commission issue. It’s a battle for the souls of the lost. It’s a call to God’s people to get involved.

Continue with us this week as we’re hearing stories of those stepping up to the front lines of adoption.

“One thing [Russell Moore] talks about in his book is, the more gospel-centered we become, the more of a burden for orphans we will have. And the more adoption-friendly our churches become, the more we’ll understand about the gospel.”

Rocky and Susanne Clark share their story about God’s love, provision, and adoption:

Adopted for Life; Adopted for Eternity

“The word ‘adopted’ is not an adjective that goes with a child and describes him for his entire life but it’s something that happened in the past tense…It’s something to rejoice in…he is our son. He’s not our adopted son.” – Michelle Fowler

In the following video, the Fowler’s tell their story about the non-appealable nature of adoption and the gospel:
