Adoption is an act of God, whereby he takes sinners, who were enemies to him and rebels against him—and constitutes them his children. It is an act of grace—of free and sovereign grace; for there was nothing in them, done by them, or expected from them, that could form a reason why this favor should be conferred upon them. It was in the mind of God from eternity!

Yes we are each in total depravity until God in is sovereign grace sent Jesus Christ on a rescue mission in eternity past to gather His elect. Gods glory is displayed in one of His attributes of mercy in doing such a thing. We each whom He has chose to save should daily beat our chest in prayer while crying out God have mercy upon me a sinner. And thank you Jesus for your ultimate sacrifice for a wretched sinner.
