CHAPTER 12—OF ADOPTION

Paragraph 1. All those that are justified, God conferred, in and for the sake of his only Son Jesus Christ, to make partakers of the grace of adoption, (Eph 1:5; Gal 4:4-5); by which they are taken into the number, and enjoy the liberties and privileges of the children of God, (Jhn 1:12; Rom 8:17); have his name put on them, (2Co 6:18; Rev 3:12); receive the spirit of adoption, (Rom 8:15); have access to the throne of grace with boldness, are enabled to cry Abba, Father, (Gal 4:6; Eph 2:18); are pitied, (Psa 103:13); protected, (Pro 14:26; 1Pe 5:7); provided for, (Hbr 12:6); and chastened by him as by a Father, (Isa 54:8-9); yet never cast off, (Lam 3:31); but sealed to the day of redemption, (Eph 4:30); and inherit the promises as heirs of everlasting salvation, (Hbr 1:14; 6:12).



DISCLAIMER: Creeds, catechisms, and confessions do not replace Scripture, nor the authority of Scripture. The creeds, catechisms and confessions are included herein for purposes of reference. Blue Letter Bible aims to provide resources that cover a range of traditional, orthodox, conservative Christianity, for the benefit of all of our users. The inclusion of the creeds, catechisms, and confessions does not necessarily mean that the ministry agrees with each and every point in each, since some are coming from different Christian perspectives of faith, practice and worship. The user may find them useful as tools to assist in understanding or teaching the Scriptures, since they were drafted based upon Scripture. Used in their proper context, they can continue to aid us as much today as they did for our forefathers in centuries past.

CONTENT DISCLAIMER:

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
