Prepare for Worship: Notes for services on December 28, 2014

"Do You Know Who You Are?"

Rick Hutton on Galatians 4:1-7

When Christmas has come and gone and we've celebrated the coming of God himself to the world--to us--we are still left to ask, "but what does that really mean?"  What is the impact that God With Us has on us?  The fact that Jesus came at just the right time changes who we were, and has huge implications for how we can live now as God's children.

1 What I am saying is that as long as an heir is underage, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate. 2 The heir is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father. 3 So also, when we were underage, we were in slavery under the elemental spiritual forces of the world. 4 But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. 6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
