Children and Heirs: God's Glorious Adoption CDs
You have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
Abba! Father! These words of Paul to the Romans (8:15) capture the intimate freedom of a child dearly loved and in love with his Father. “Daddy,” the redeemed believer cries to God. The cry expresses a deep and direct experience between human heart and divine person. No wonder these words are an exclamation! They are put before us as a reality, a promise, and a hope!
But for too many, the exclamations of “Abba! Father!” have been replaced by pressing questions. What exactly does it mean that God is “Father”? How are such names to comfort those whose earthly fathers have been at best a disappointment, at worst a torment?Why does the Scripture seem to overlook women in its talk of adoption? What am I supposed to make of the fact that God seems distant and unconcerned about my Christian experience? Am I missing something? Our prayerful intention is to provide a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of the biblical and Trinitarian doctrines of adoption, one that will strengthen your faith, address your questions, and renew an exuberant hope in God as your Abba, your Father! 4 messages on 4 CDs
