For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. -2 Peter 1:4
Siring means sharing. In fathering a child, a man passes on the essence of himself, while recognizing the child will have his distinct ways. All humans are created by God, but sin separated us from His character. In the salvation covenant through Christ, the Creator becomes Abba Father—“Dad.” The new birth means we participate in God’s very nature. The moment each of my sons came into the world, my home, food and resources were theirs. So when we are born into God’s Kingdom through Jesus Christ, all His promises are ours, by inheritance.
