What Should You Know About Perfect Life
“But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.” (Galatians 4:4-5)
To be God’s child is not your right and is not something you deserve. It always remains a Gift of Grace. Read again what Paul says in Galatians 4:1-4 NKJV “Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, 2 but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. 3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. 4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law.”
When parents adopt a child, they don’t do so because that child deserves it, but because they have something to offer him; Parental love, a home, nurturing, etc. That is exactly what God does with you. He adopts you as His Child, not on the basis of what you deserve, but because He loves you and because He wants to offer you eternal life. Man is sinful by nature and far from God.
But God loves sinners. He sent His only Son to be crucified so that our sins can be forgiven and we can become His children. Now you are a child and heir of God. For you that are born again, know without a shadow of doubt that you are Sons of the Living God.
