Sons of God

“In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.” (Galatians 4:3–7 ESV)

It is an overwhelming thought that the Creator of all things now calls me a son. Emotions dwell up inside when we think on this.  We did nothing to earn it, in fact we were objects of His wrath because of our sinful self-reliant hearts.  But now, we are in His family.  From enemies to family with an inheritance – let that sink in.
