Adoption means the future is ours

Tim Keller writes:

When Paul speaks of the renewed material creation, he says the new heavens and new earth are guaranteed to us because on the cross Jesus restored of our relationship with God as his true sons and daughters. Romans 8:18ff teaches, remarkably, that the redemption of our bodies and of the entire physical world happens when we ‘‘receive our adoption.’’ As his children we are guaranteed our future inheritance (Heb. 9:15, Eph. 5:5). And because of that inheritance, the world is renewed. The future is ours because of Christ’’s finished work in the past. ~“Gospel Theology,” p. 5
