S6E17 Adoption and the Family of God

On this episode of the Bellator Christi Podcast, Dr. Brian Chilton and Curtis Evelo discuss the spiritual adoption that takes place when a believer enters the family of God. They describe the incredible benefits and blessings of this union. Throughout the podcast, Brian and Curtis use Scripture to back up their claims, as they contemplate the marvelously rich relationship found in Christ. They cover the following questions on S6E17 Adoption and the Family of God:

1. What do we mean by “adoption”?

2. When does adoption occur for the child of God?

3. Is there a formal declarative sense in our adoption in Christ?

4. In what sense are the adopted people of God called his children?

5. What benefits come by this adoption?

6. How much liberty comes with God’s grace in this adopted relationship? Are we free to do as we please, or are there certain commandments required for the believer?

7. What does it mean to be part of the spiritual family of God? Is this family only found with believers on earth and in our local communities?
