Adoption into the Trinity


“Adoption” is not merely a metaphor for the Christian’s relationship to God, not just one way among several to think about the relationship. God has revealed himself to be fundamentally Father, Son, and Spirit. Through the Spirit we enjoy the Son’s communion with the Father. By God’s grace, the divine life is opened to us, and we are caught up into it. We are in the very position of the second Person of the Trinity. Adoption into the Son’s place in the Trinity is the ultimate purpose for which we were created and redeemed.
