Chapter XII. Of Adoption

All those that are justified, God vouchsafes, in and for His only Son Jesus Christ, to make partakers of the grace of adoption [a], by which they are taken into the number, and enjoy the liberties and privileges of the children of God [b], have His name put upon them [c], receive the spirit of adoption [d], have access to the throne of grace with boldness [e], are enabled to cry, Abba, Father [f], are pitied [g], protected [h], provided for [i], and chastened by Him as by a Father [k]: yet never cast off [l], but sealed to the day of redemption [m]; and inherit the promises [n], as heirs of everlasting salvation [o].
