Adoption is usually referred to as the forgotten facet in the jewel of salvation. It is our highest privilege as Christian people – being adopted into the family of God, becoming children of our heavenly Father. But we usually tend to lay much emphasis on the biblical teaching of justification, and rightly so. We need to understand how we are made right with God. There is no doubt about that. Knowing how a person is to find peace with God is foundational to the Christian faith and to our understanding of the Christian message. In any case, that is where everything begins – experientially. However, and this is the point I am making, adoption is the apex of salvation as revealed in the Bible. It is the zenith of that process of salvation that the God of the Bible pursues so relentlessly in the soul of person who humbly bows their knee and joyfully acknowledges Jesus Christ as their Lord.
