Gospel-Driven Quote of the Week

“Adoption is about being wanted. It is about belonging. These are deeply emotive themes, which resonate with the cares and concerns of many in our increasingly fractured society. To be adopted is to be invited into a loving and caring environment. It is about being welcomed, wanted and invited. Adoption celebrates the privilege of invitation, in which the outsider is welcomed into the fold of faith and love.”

(Alister McGrath, Knowing Christ, pp. 144-145; emphasis in original; quoted in Adopted in God’s Family, Trevor J. Burke, p. 197)
