Restored to God by the Gift of Adoption

by Dan Cruver Published Nov 29, 2012

This is so very good. Commenting on what God has done for us in the death and resurrection of Jesus, Craig Bartholomew and Michael Goheen write:

“We who are born into the sinful race of Adam are restored to God by receiving his gift of adoption (Galatians 4:4-5; Ephesians 1:4).  The same Spirit that lived in Jesus is poured into our own lives and enables us to call God ‘Abba, Father,’ as Jesus did (Romans 8:14-15) (The Drama of Scripture: Finding Our Place in the Biblical Story, 193)


To further explore all that God has done for us in Adoption, pick up a copy of Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father. It would make an excellent Christmas gift!
