Settled Direction of Righteousness

We have been born again into a new family, and the power of the Father of that family, the likeness of the Elder Brother in it, have been bestowed also on us. Yes, we sin and fail. But our lives grow in the settled direction of righteousness and holiness, because that is the nature of the family disposition given to us, and that is the direction in which our Elder Brother guides us.

-Sinclair Ferguson, Children of the Living God
