Adoption is exhaustively Christological, pneumatological, redemptive, and eschatological

It is in the death flow 12:50 PM Saturday afternoon. Outside this afternoon the sun is shining.

I got up this morning around 5:55 AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. Carol got up and I made for us oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast we went to the Holland Farmer's Market. After getting food at the Holland Farmer's Market we came home. I downloaded the pictures I took this morning at the Farmer's Market and then wrote in my paper diary.

After writing in my paper diary I decided to do lawn work, which took me to 11:35 AM to accomplish. After working outside I cleaned up and then ate food. After lunch I wrote some more in my paper diary and read from a book titled, 'Sons in the Son: The Riches and Reach of Adoption in Christ' by David B. Garner. Last night I read 'Sons in the Son' by Garner late into the night.

There is not much else to report this afternoon. Existence keeps decaying faster and faster.

"just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to His good pleasure" Ephesians 1:4,5

"And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba Father!" Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ" Galatians 4:6,7

"For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father's and of the holy angels" Luke 9:25,26

"in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power" 2 Thess. 1:8,9
