Robert A. Webb on the glory of adoption

“To bring man back as a disobedient subject, & reinstate him in heavenly citizenship, & confer upon him the immunities & duties of a servant, & let him take his place as a ministering spirit about the burning throne of God – this would be an exhibition of grace worthy of immortal doxologies; but grace is heaped upon grace, & mercy is banked upon mercy, & love is laid over upon love with more than ten-fold thickness, when the sinner is reclaimed, & transplanted in the bosom of the heavenly Father, made an inmate in the eternal and fadeless home of God, & appointed an heir to all that glory which is incorruptible, undefined, & that fades not away.” (The Reformed Doctrine of Adoption, page 20)
