Adoption From The Thematic Bible 8

  • Adoption From The Thematic Bible  8: 


    Adoption » Saints become brethren of Christ by:

    John 20:17:  Jesus *said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’”

    Hebrews 2:11-12:  For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying, "I WILL PROCLAIM YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN, IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION I WILL SING YOUR PRAISE."


    Adoption » Saints receive the spirit of:

    Romans 8:15:  For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”

    Galatians 4:6:  Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”


    Adoption » Is according to promise:

    Galatians 3:29:  And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.

    Romans 9:8:  That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are regarded as descendants.


    Adoption » Is through Christ:

    John 1:12:  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,

    Galatians 4:4-5:  But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
