What is Adoption?

Adoption is an act of God’s free grace, whereby we are received into the number, and have a right to all the privileges, of the sons of God.

We Are Called Sons of God: See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God, and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. John 3:1

Fellow Heirs with Christ:The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him. Romans 8:16-17

God gave the Right: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:12-13

Through Jesus Christ those who have received Him, have been given the right to become children of God. The Holy Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are sons and that we are fellow heirs with Christ. How great the love of God!
