Understanding adoption also helps us to view holiness properly. Holiness is not about keeping rules and mere outward behaviors. It is about living out our family relationship with God and about being motivated in our hearts and lives by our love and appreciation for God's grace which brought us into His family.

The ministry of the Holy Spirit is a subject of much confusion among believers. Some are looking for a "magically" transforming power and experience. We must not deny this supernatural aspect of the Holy Spirit's ministry, but there is also the stable, underlying reality of the Holy Spirit revealing to us that we are the children of God.

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!

Jesus' relationship to His Father teaches us four things about fatherhood. A father implies authority, affection, fellowship, and honor. But the last of these is implied in a surprising way.

We continue to explore the fact of God as our perfect Father and the applications of this fact to our roles as human parents. Our view of God makes a tremendous impact upon our lives.

Views on parenting have changed radically in recent decades. The feminization of our society has played a major role in this change. We need to be a people of mature Biblical understanding in order to not be unduly swayed by our culture.
