Ordination #2, Art. 6d: Adoption

Finally, only such as receive Jesus Christ become children of God (Jn. 1.12; Eph. 1.5), which includes the benefits of reconciliation to God (Rom. 5.10-11), freedom from sin (Rom. 8.14-16), access to God’s resources (Rom. 8.16-17; Phil. 4.19), and parental discipline (Heb. 12.5-11).

How do you experience the benefits of being God’s child? Which are encouraging? Which are challenging?
