Restored to God by the Gift of Adoption

by Dan Cruver Published Jan 20, 2009

Commenting on what God has done 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)
