Seeing Jesus Together - Warrenville

Passage: Luke 24:13-35

Speaker: Steve Hands


This past week my wife and I spent time with a close friend who adopted a two and a half year old child. Their home, family, and hearts were prepared to lavish great love on their new child. This child would come into a caring, loving and comfortable home. Surely this child would respond with ecstatic appreciation! Or so we all thought. After years of waiting, the actual adoption happened, and the child struggled. She struggled to leave her foster parents and adjust to her new parents. She threw temper tantrums and refused to eat. Physical challenges became apparent. Although she was adopted into a new family, she struggled to adapt to that new family. Only after a few years did she begin to settle into her new identity as an adopted child.
