God's Adoption Of Christians
What God has done for mankind is beyond words. Nevertheless, in His infinite wisdom, God has accommodated human language to convey His will to His creation in the Scriptures. Adoption is one term that conveys God’s love in an especially emotive & unique way. The term is used several times in the New Testament to show us unequivocally that God is gracious, loving, and tenderhearted to those made in His image. This is all expressed freely, openly in the light of our helpless, desperate situation brought on by sin (Romans 5:6-8).
