As sinners, we naturally dislike the idea of grace, preferring to clean ourselves up on our own instead. It is only through Christ’s death and the conviction of the Holy Spirit, however, that we receive salvation. But believers enjoy far more than just forgiveness, Alistair Begg reminds us. God also adopts us as children, and the Spirit indwells us and works in our hearts. Our adoption isn’t just a contractual transaction; it’s a brand-new relationship with our heavenly Father.
