Adoption is one of the blessings that God has given us in Christ Jesus. "It is taking a stranger into the relationship of a son and heir." In adoption, God does the following three things: (1) He gives us His name; (2) He sanctifies us by His Spirit; and (3) the Holy Spirit prompts us to cry, "Abba, Father" (Gal 4:6). Adoption is a high honor and is a wonderful demonstration of the love of God to us.
