Adoption by Watson


Thomas Watson







 

We may know God is our Father, by resembling Him. The child is his father's picture. ...every child of God resembles the king of heaven... Herein God's adopted children and man's differ. A man adopts one for his son and heir that does not at all resemble him; but whomsoever God adopts for His child is like Him; he not only bears his heavenly Father's name, but His image. "And have put on the new man, which is renewed after the image of Him that created him" (Colossians 3:10). "He who has God for his Father, resembles Him in holiness, which is the glory of the Godhead, Exodus 15:11. 


The holiness of God is the intrinsic purity of His essence. He who loves God for his Father, partakes of the divine nature; though not of the divine essence, yet of the divine likeness...He has the print and effigies of

His holiness stamped upon him."{Watson, Thomas, (1620-1686). The Lord's Prayer, (c 1962.)  London: Banner of Truth Trust, p. 9,10
