Adoption is Biblical

I have just started reading Adopted for Life by Russell Moore. I have already been challenged and encouraged to think more Biblically about adoption. This quote is a good challenge to the church:

It is one thing when the culture doesn't "get" adoption. What else could one expect when all of life is seen as the quest of "selfish genes" for survival? It is one thing when the culture doesn't "get" adoption and so speaks of buy a cat as "adopting" a pet. But when those who follow Christ think the same way, we betray that we we miss something crucial about our own salvation.

Found on pages 18-19
