Grounds for Thanksgiving

by Dan Cruver Published Nov 25, 2010

Justin Buzzard of Buzzard Blog, an endorser of Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father, sent me one of his favorite quotations from the book. For all those who have been saved by grace through faith, the truth of this quotation provides grounds for thanksgiving whatever day of the year it is.

At this point, it is critically important that we remember that the Son who was sent forth to redeem us so that we might receive adoption as sons is none other than the One who eternally enjoyed communion with the Father. The Son who was sent is a member of the Trinity that has been, is, and forever will be a communion of Persons. Therefore, when that Son became incarnate, communion with God became incarnate. In the incarnate Son communion with the Father finally burst into the far country of our alienation from the Father. Through the incarnation, Jesus (fully God and fully man in His one Person) became not merely the means but the place—the locale—where communion with God happens in all its unimaginable fullness. It is only in the Person of Christ that God and man meet in loving communion. The understated good news of the Gospel is that the humanity of Jesus has become our communion with His Father.

Cruciform Press will release Reclaiming Adoption on January 1, 2011.
