O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Westminster Confession of Faith, Question 74

Question 74

What is adoption?

Adoption is an act of the free grace of God, (1 John 3:1) in and for his only Son Jesus Christ, (Eph. 1:5, Gal. 4:4–5) whereby all those that are justified are received into the number of his children, (John 1:12) have his name put upon them, (2 Cor. 6:18, Rev. 3:12) the Spirit of his Son given to them, (Gal. 4:6) are under his fatherly care and dispensations, (Ps. 103:13, Prov. 14:26, Matt. 6:32) admitted to all the liberties and privileges of the sons of God, made heirs of all the promises, and fellow-heirs with Christ in glory. (Heb. 6:12, Rom. 8:17)
