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, living a perfect and sinless life, dying 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," and 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
