40 Days Following Jesus: Day 30
But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir. Galatians 4:4-7 (NIV)
Jesus came under the law so we don’t have to pay the penalty for being under the law.
Because we are purchased we are now God’s kids and he has given us the Spirit of Jesus. The Holy Spirit lives inside our hearts and leads us to a relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Because I now am a purchased child by my faith alone, I’m included in an inheritance.
My next step:
Because the Spirit of Jesus lives in me I must pursue living like Jesus and an heir to a kingdom.
