Chapter 12: Of Adoption
_______ All those that are justified, God vouchsafed, in and for the
sake of his only Son Jesus Christ, to make partakers of the grace of
adoption, by which they are taken into the number, and enjoy the
liberties and privileges of the children of God, have his name put
upon them, receive the spirit of adoption, have access to the throne
of grace with boldness, are enabled to cry Abba, Father, are pitied,
protected, provided for, and chastened by him as by a Father, yet never
cast off, but sealed to the day of redemption, and inherit the promises
as heirs of everlasting salvation.
