Galatians 4 v1-7Friday 16th October

Paul elaborates on the wonderful Biblical truth of adoption. Those who trust in Christ receive the Holy Spirit and are freed from slavery to sin, they are adopted as a child of God and become an heir to eternal life.
Galatians 4 v1-7

Galatians 4:1–7

Sons and Heirs

4:1 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave,1 though he is the owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles2 of the world. But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.
