Theological Term of the Week: Adoption

Theology-image

This week’s term: Adoption – In Biblical terminology it means to be placed as an adult son. We presently enjoy this position by faith through the Spirit of God within us. (Romans 8:15) We shall enjoy it in a fuller sense at the redemption of the body. (Romans 8:22-23)

Last week’s term: Salvation – Deliverance. The word properly carries with it the general and composite effect of all its various aspects, such as redemption, reconciliation, regeneration, calling, preservation, perseverance, and glorification. The word, in its general sense, should not be confused as being inherently synonymous with any of the words describing particular details thereof.
