Redeemed and Adopted
Today's reading: Galatians 4:1-7
As we move into Galatians 4, Paul continues to pound home the message that we are no longer under the law because of what Jesus did for us--coming to earth and living a perfect and sinless life before then giving up His life on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. In verse 5, Paul tells us that Jesus came to "redeem those who were under the law." As a result, when we choose to receive Christ as our Savior, we become an adopted child and heir of God. Thank you, Jesus!
How often do you think about being a child and heir of God? What do those terms mean to you personally? Tami
