Christ was born under the law and fulfilled that law, so that everyone who was once under the law could be freed from the law. This redemption from the law has made us heirs of our heavenly Father (Our Daddy), and we will receive all the benefits that have been bestowed upon Christ. So why would we not want to bring our friends family into this wonderful family to receive the same grace and treasures that have been given to us.

Born Under The Law

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law,

God’s time is perfect, it is complete.
Nothing God does is imperfect or incomplete
God already had a plan in place.
He already Had a plan set in place
To save ourselves
He waited until the time was perfect.

What does this mean
To believers
That God will not disown you NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!!
That means that no matter how many terrible horrible things you have done in your life or that you may do later on in life. God will still love you because you are one of his precious children. HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU AND HE HAS ALREADY FORGIVEN YOU AND THAT IS WHY WE SHOULD FORGIVE ANYONE WHO HAS EVER WRONGED US!
Heirs of Grace

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

God has chose you. He has picked you.
Holding child for the first time
This is the love/feelings God has for you but times infinity
Sent his spirit into our Hearts
Abba! Father!
Intimate loving personal relationship
The Cross
Thinking of you while suffering
Thinking of you while pouring out wrath
Left everything behind for us!
So we could inherit an abundant grace.
Now the law came to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
w the law came to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
Jesus fulfilled the law!
He forgave the sin.
The grace! Look around! This is our inheritance!
So my question to you is…Why are you hoarding this grace for you? What is it Pastor Danny say to you when he dismisses you from communion? What you have been freely given freely share! Go and peace and serve the Lord! Share this grace! Share this faith! Share that you are a precious child of God! Tell everyone that they no longer need to be chained to the sins of their past! Tell them that there is freedom in Christ! That you have inherited and that there is an unending supply of it! So get out there and take and share your inheritance with the World!
