Are You Astounded That You Are Adopted By God?

“Every believer finds this both a humbling and thrilling statement. When we realize what we were by nature; when we think with sorrow of all our sin since we were saved, let alone the sin before, it’s astounding that God should call us His children. But there are some people who do not find this astounding at all. They think  that everyone is a child of God, and that God is the father of all human beings. Therefore, there’s nothing surprising in this to them. The problem is that they chose to ignore the fact of their own sinful nature and the clear biblical teaching that sin is so horrendous that it separates us from God.”

– Peter Jeffery, Believers Need the Gospel, p.33
