The spring issue of Cedarville Magazine touches on a topic that is significant to me on both a personal and theological level — adoption. For my wife, Joy, and me, our family was transformed by adoption when a beautiful red-headed little girl with sparkling blue eyes became our daughter, Rachel. But adoption also has profound theological implications for all those who call on God as Father. All Christians, through faith in Jesus Christ, are adopted into the forever family of our Creator and our King, always a son or daughter for the rest of eternity.
