Speaker – Adopted as Daughters

On Mondays we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention. We asked our speaker Rachel Sloan to share more about what she will be speaking on.

What are you speaking about at the Scottish Women’s Convention and why?

As believers we know and rejoice in the fact that through Christ, God forgave us, redeemed us and justified us. But the blessings of the gospel do not end there. Theologian Trevor Burke explains, “God does not only justify people and then leave them destitute with nowhere to go – he adopted them into the warmth and security of his household.” God has another blessing for us. We have been given new status – daughters of God and now have a permanent intimacy with God as our heavenly Father. 

Through exploring Ephesians 1 and Romans 8 my prayer is that we will see afresh the wonderful privilege of being adopted as daughters, with God as our father. As we do, we shall see we can live as a daughter in freedom, rather than a slave to fear. We enjoy God’s tender love knowing he carefully provides for all our daily needs. We have hope for the future knowing that we will one day receive a glorious inheritance which will never perish, spoil or fade.

Besides speaking, what one thing about the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention are you looking forward to and why?

Being able to gather with so many women to sing God’s praise is wonderful. It is also such a blessing to meet friends who I haven’t seen in a while.
