CHAPTER 12

 

Of Adoption.


All those that are justified, God vouchsafeth, in and for his only Son Jesus Christ, to make partakers of the grace of adoption:a by which they are taken into the number, and enjoy the liberties and privileges of the children of God;b have his name put upon them,c receive the Spirit of adoption;d have access to the throne of grace with boldness;e are enabled to cry, Abba, Father;f are pitied,g protected,h provided for,i and chastened by him as by a father;k yet never cast off,l but sealed to the day of redemption,m and inherit the promises,n as heirs of everlasting salvation.o
