A Special Diet

A couple of days ago, I was listening to C.J. Mahaney’s sermon “God as Father: Understanding the Biblical Doctrine of Adoption.”  In the course of his sermon, he suggested that those who struggle with seeing God as Father and believing that He loves them should focus solely on scriptures and readings that talk about the Biblical doctrine of adoption.  Mahaney says if he could, he would create “a special diet” for them that focuses solely on this topic.  So, that is my goal.  To focus, for the next few weeks, on this topic and the suggested readings.

Here is the reading list, which will be supplemented with various Scripture readings:

1) Ch. 19 from “Knowing God” by J.I. Packer
2) Ch. 3 from “Adopted for Life” by Russell Moore
3) “Adopted into God’s Family” by Trevor Burke
4) “Children of the Living God” by Sinclair Ferguson
