“But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.”Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir” (Gal 4 4-7; NLT).
Jesus came for a very important and specific purpose- he came to ensure we could share in His life. The verse above mentions adoption- when a child is adopted, they become part of the family – they aren’t just someone living in the same place, eating the same food as the rest but they are part of something greater. When Christ gave Himself for us, we were adopted into God’s family and He became our heavenly Father, our ABBA – God rescued us and made us a part of His own family, gave us an inheritance, and gave us access to Himself directly as a child has to His father. God has blessed you, called you His own, and has an inheritance waiting for you! Amen!
