Galatians 4: 4-7

But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.

Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you were no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God made you also an heir.

A Thought

God had given Moses the Law to reveal what sin was but did not make a way to deliver them from their bondage of sin. They were to make blood sacrifices, but this was only a temporary solution–they were still under bondage. God had a plan, when the time was right, to send his Son to redeem his people from the burden of slavery to make it possible to be his sons and daughters–heirs with Jesus the Christ by his perfect blood sacrifice.

The Prayer

Father thank you for the gift of your Son making it possible for us to be your sons and daughters redeemed by his blood. We do not have to be a slave to sin. We can live godly lives because the righteousness of Christ is revealed to us by the Spirit. Make us strong with faith in your word. Deliver us from evil. We rejoice in you in the name of Jesus’ the Christ, amen.
