More than a name:
A man adopts one for has son and heir that does not at all resemble him, but whosoever God adopts for His child is like Him; he not only bears His heavenly Fatherís name, but His image. Col. 3:10.
The least degree of sincere sanctification, being an effect of regeneration, is a certain sign of adoption, and may minister a sure argument to him that has it, that he is the adopted child of God.
