Message of the Day: In Christ We Live as Free Adults Adopted into the Family of God.
“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 4:4-5, NKJV)
The purpose of the law of Moses was just temporary – it was to usher people to Christ as ancient slave-tutors led children. It was accomplished by making people ardently conscious of their inability to make themselves righteous. Being ‘under the law’ therefore, was like being minors or slaves.
But in Christ we live as free adults, adopted into the family of God with grown up rights and responsibilities. Christ fulfilled the law’s requirements so we can enjoy the inheritance as adults sons of God.
