Knowing what it means that we have been adopted into the family of God has some very practical implications. It defines our conduct, it emboldens our prayer life, and it deepens our life of faith so that we don't have to live bound by fear, anxiety, and worry. We are God's children!

Knowing God- Part 35

Whatever God does, all of God does. In other words, His grace, mercy, and love are never at odds with His holiness and justice. God's holiness means that God cannot simply ignore man's sins. Propitiation makes it possible for God to forgive our sins and still remain just.
