In Adopted into God’s Family, Trevor Burke writes:

“In today’s world people ‘crave connectedness’, and certainly the desire to be accepted and to belong is a basic need of every human heart. Adoption is an intensely relational concept and centers upon a relationship with the living God. That God the Father desires to enter into a relationship with people is the essence of the Christian gospel; that this relationship is expressed in terms of familial language in general and in terms of adoption in particular is Pauline Christianity. The alienation and the need to be connected is where the doctrine of Christian adoption comes in because it serves the purpose of underscoring how God has dealt with the question of our estrangement by taking us from being ‘children of disobedience’ (Eph. 2:2) and placing us as adopted sons and daughters in his family” (196).
