C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  Faith unites us to Christ, and acquiesces in the redemption purchased by Him as the meritorious cause of our adoption.
Fisher’s Catechism.    
                    ’Tis often seen
Adoption strives with nature; and choice breeds
A native slip to us from foreign lands.
  Adoption is an act of God’s free grace, whereby we are received into the number, and have a right to all the privileges of the sons of God.
Westminster Catechism.    
  We need a spirit of adoption to take us out of the foundling hospital of the world, and to put us into the celestial family.
G. D. Boardman.
