Packer on Adoption
If you want to judge how well a person understands Christianity, find out how much he makes of the thought of being God's child, and having God as his Father. If this is not the thought that prompts and controls his worship and prayers, and his whole outlook on life, it means that he does not understand Christianity very well at all. [...] To be right with God the judge is a great thing, but to be loved and cared for by God the father is a greater.
