An article by Dr. Paul M. Elliott is this month's Article of the Month. Adoption, not by a human but by the One True Living God of sinners is the topic presented. He writes:
This precious doctrine is often neglected in contemporary preaching. In a three-part series we shall examine three related questions: How are believers adopted by God? What does adoption mean for the believer’s present life? What does adoption mean for the life to come? We’ll also examine some current false teachings about adoption.
Not only is Dr. Elliott's article informative and corrective but it is also heart-warming and even beyond comprehension. By that I mean when one grasps the depth of one being adopted as a son of God Himself, it transcends the ability of any mortal man to absorb completely... see 1Jn 3:1,2:
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
I hope all will be blessed by this month's article and share it with someone who you think would benefit from it as well.
