Galatians 4: 4-5: (NKJV) But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
Galatians 4: 4-7 (The Message) But when the time arrived that was set by God the Father, God sent his Son, born among us of a woman, born under the conditions of the law so that he might redeem those of us who have been kidnapped by the law. Thus we have been set free to experience our rightful heritage. You can tell for sure that you are now fully adopted as his own children because God sent the Spirit of his Son into our lives crying out, “Papa! Father!” Doesn’t that privilege of intimate conversation with God make it plain that you are not a slave, but a child? And if you are a child, you’re also an heir, with complete access to the inheritance.
My daily reader quoted Galatians 4 today along with a little saying at the end of the page.
The thought of the day said: Jesus came to earth for us so we could go to heaven with Him.
JESUS CAME TO EARTH FOR US SO WE COULD GO TO HEAVEN WITH HIM!
One thought, one phrase, one birth, one man changed the World.
Shout, Sing, Praise, Ring in the New Year because you are redeemed. You can experience your rightful heritage. You are adopted as a Child of God.
Cry out to your Papa – Your Father – You can have an intimate conversation with God. Jesus made it plain and simple – We are no longer slaves to sin but heirs to Heaven – we have complete access to God’s inheritance.
Sing Happy Birthday to YOU this Advent – through Jesus – you are the receiver of Heaven’s Gift.
