III. WHO RECEIVES THE GRACE OF ADOPTION? Galatians 3:25-26 — "But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster, but ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus." Galatians 4:4-7 — "But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ." John 1:12 RV — "But as many as received him, to them gave he the right to become children of God, even to them that believe on his name."
Proposition: All those who believe in or receive Christ Jesus, receive the adoption of sons — i.e., they obtain a place or right as sons in the family of God.
