Galatians 4

Galatians 4 – You Are Sons

“And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!’ So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”  Galatians 4:6-7

When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we become not only disciples but also servants. And although we’re called to follow Jesus, God does a marvelous thing,  He makes us sons and daughters! That’s right, we become His children.

God does this because He has an earnest desire to have an intimate relationship with His creation.  From the moment God’s relationship with Adam and Eve was broken, He’s been pursuing man to reconcile the relationship. John writes that “as many as received him (Jesus), to them (man) gave he (individual) power to become the sons of God, even to them (man) that believe on his (Jesus) name” John 1:12

Becoming a child of God has many blessings. One of those blessings is a spiritual inheritance. This inheritance that every Christian receives is heaven, a perfect body, peace, and happiness; something this world is void of.

 

CHALLENGE

Are a child of God? If so, do you realize the value of your inheritance? Although this world has so little to offer, God promises to each Christian an inheritance that will never fade away. Keeping this in mind, do you walk worthy of it?
