“The Wonder of Adoption!”

“We have enough in us to move God to correct us, but nothing to move him to adopt us, therefore exalt free grace, begin the work of angels here; bless him with your praises who hath blessed you in making you his sons and daughters.”

In declaring our adoption as sons of God, Paul reveals it was according to God’s sovereign will of predestination. Ephesians 1:5 says that God, “Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.”
