"when we adopt - and when we encourage a culture of adoption in our churches and communities - were picturing something that's true about our God. we, like Jesus, see what our Father is doing and do likewise (john 5:19). and what our Father is doing, it turns out, is fighting for orphans making them sons and daughters."
- adopted for life, dr. russell moore
["so Jesus said to them, "truly, truly, i say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. for whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise." john 5:19]
