Gal 4:
Galatians 4:1–7 KJV 1900
1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. 3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: 4 But when the fulness 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. 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

We are heir’s (v. 1-3

Galatians 4:1–3 KJV 1900
1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. 3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
:1-
Paul begins with an attempt to demonstrate the spiritual imeturity of the idea that one needed to live under the law.
He reminded the Believers in galacia of a child who was part of an inharetince although a child owned the entire estate he was as a slave he had no freedom and could make no desisions
look at verse 2
look at verse 2
Galatians 4:2 KJV 1900
2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
under Roman law the age of meturity was set by the father and involved a cerimony where the son was officially set as heir.
This is different than the gardians we talked about last week, theese would have been stwards of his inarentence until the formal ceremonry
Galatians 4:3 KJV 1900
3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
Galatians 4:4 ESV
4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,
Paul brings this illistration together. The believers in galacia were formally inslave to the world.
Some translate this as when they were priviously under the law, but it is most lickly he is here refering to being imeture in there relegious understanding
wheter that be jews that were under the law or gentiles in bondage to unbiblical religions the bottom line was both of them were inslaved until Christ freeded them by His death.
This is what salvation does we are no longer enslaved by our sin, defined by our sin we are free and Christ’s death on the cross is what difines us.
We Cry Abba Father (V. 4-7)
Galatians 4:4–7 KJV 1900
4 But when the fulness 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. 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Galatians 2:4–7 ESV
4 Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in—who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery— 5 to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you. 6 And from those who seemed to be influential (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality)—those, I say, who seemed influential added nothing to me. 7 On the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised
Galatians 4:4 KJV 1900
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
Galatians 2:4 KJV 1900
4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
This one word is key BUT but what?
We saw that priviously we were enslaved to the pricipals of the world and the law but now God has sent His son to be born of a woman and born under the law
now in verse five
Galatians 4:5 KJV 1900
5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
So God sent his son, to born under the law to so that we can become a child of God.
We touched on this term adoption brefly last week and throughout this series.
What does it mean?
To have all the rights and priviliges of a true son
We who are saved have all the rights and priviliges of a child of God
Galatians 4:6 KJV 1900
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
He goes from declaring us adopted sons to this statement
Because we are sons God has sent his spirit of His son into our hearts, crying Abba Father
Upon salvation we are indwelet with the holy spirit in the OT people were occatinally filled with the spirit but no own was indwelt but we are all indwelt.
Galatians 4:7 KJV 1900
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
He finishes with the reminder we are no longer a slave of the Law but...
We are a son and if we are...
we are an heir through God
Application
Have you accepted Christ as your savior? have you broken the chains of sin
Since we are free from the bondage do we share this freedom if not why not
Gal
the text says came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
THe entire theeme of galations is this
