REDEEMED FROM THE LAW

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Gal 4:4-5

4 But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. 5 God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.*

NLT

Further reading: Galatians 3 and 4

In this scripture, Paul was addressing the misconception among the Galatians who were called Christians; these people were living by grace but in their daily lives they were still held bound by the demands of the law. And about such people the bible says the heir as long as he is a child (still living under the law) differeth nothing from a servant , though he be lord of all.

You are a co-heir with Christ but as long as your mind has not been renewed to a sonship level, you are still a child and your inheritance will not be committed to you.

Note that the moment you give your life to Christ Jesus, your dead conscience is made alive and if you don’t have anybody to teach you grace as a foundation, each time you come in contact with the word of God you will keep on trying to keep the law in the flesh. And this is not the gospel of our lord Jesus; the gospel of Jesus is the gospel of grace and truth (see John 1:17). You keep the law (of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus) by faith and not by works; this faith produces a righteousness that even the law (of sin and death) cannot fault (see Gal 5:23).

A son is the one who understands that the righteousness of God is reveled from faith to faith and not from faith to works.

Go into today determined to live your life by grace (total dependence on the finished work on the cross; God’s empowerment to express Christ).

PRAYER: ask God to deliver you from work to work mentality and help you to see the true Gospel.
