Knowing God as Father

Understanding the Doctrine of Adoption

Christians are to be convinced of God’s love for them and yet often struggle with doubts. After the doctrine of justification, no truth deepens our certainty and experience of God’s love as much as understanding our adoption in Christ. It has a convincing effect on the soul. J. I. Packer has written, “The truth of our adoption gives us the deepest insights that New Testament affords into the greatness of God’s love.” This workshop explores this insight and its implications for every Christian and pastor.
