God sent forth His Son to redeem us

Posted

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. Galatians 4:4-5

The law instructs us and reveals our utter sinfulness and need for the promised Savior. God kept His ancient promise to send that Savior – His own dear Son, born of the Virgin Mary – to keep the law for us and then to redeem us from the curse of the law by dying for our sins in our stead. Why? That we might be adopted and accepted as God’s own children through faith in Christ Jesus and inherit eternal life.

Thank You, O gracious God, for sending Your Son to redeem me from the curse and condemnation of Your holy law. Grant that I hold fast to Christ Jesus in faith that I may be Your child and partake of the eternal joys of Your kingdom. Amen.

[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]
