Adoption is an amazing reflection of the truth of the gospel- in Christ we are now children of God. Consider the following verses.
"See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God." -1 John 3:1a
"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world." -James 1:27
February’s free book-of-the-month from ChristianAudio is Russell Moore’s outstanding book, Adopted for Life.
