Galatians 3: 26 -29 and 4: 1- 7
“For you are all sons of God through faith in Jesus Christ. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave or free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are for Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise. 4 Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child [John 1:12], does not differ at all from a slave, though he is a master of all. But he is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. 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 may receive the adoption as sons…therefore you are no longer a slave but a son…”
It is so wonderful that you and I are no longer slaves to what the world can offer. Through Jesus Christ we are adopted into the family of God. Through Christ, you and I have the first fruits of the spirit that even we our selves groan within our selves eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our bodies Romans 8:23. Although we are in the world and the pain there under that cause our mortal bodies to become weak, we are secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore none of us who is in Christ received a spirit of bondage but the spirit of adoption by whom we cry out Abba Father. We no longer look at God as a master but as a Father. We speak to him as our Daddy. We tell him every thing and anything about us without hesitation because he is Our Father.
Believe me !!! Your Father in Heaven Loves you so much.
