Is there any privilege so precious as this, to be the sons of God (1 John 3:2)? What are all the relations, or states, or conditions to this one, to be the children of the Highest? It was David's question, "Should I be the king's son-in-law?" Alas! What a petty and poor dignity compared with this, to be the sons of God, partakers of a divine nature!
