Lent: Day 25 40 days of repentance, renewal, and returning to God

The Fullness of the Time

Our path of faith as children of God also follows God’s appointed time.

We are “HEIR” and “Master.” But, until God’s appointed time comes, we will look NO DIFFERENT at all from a slave,

Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all (Gal 4:1)...

And will be placed under guardians…

but is under guardians and stewards (Gal 4:2) ….

When we are children, we will face bondage under the elements of the world…

Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world (Gal 4:3).

We don’t know God very well when we are young children, so we serve those which are not gods.

However at that time, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods (Galatians 4:8).


but is under guardians and stewards UNTIL THE TIME APPOINTED BY THE FATHER (Gal 4:2)

When is this time appointed by Father?

Just as Isaac was born according to God’s appointed time, our long awaited Savior, Jesus Christ—the true Son of OBEDIENCE—came to us according to God’s appointed time.

The Bible defines this time as “the FULLNESS OF THE TIME had come.”

But when the FULLNESS OF THE TIME came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons (Galatians 4:4-5).

Because Jesus came and redeemed us, we have His Spirit in us. That’s why we can call God our Father.

Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!" (Galatians 4:6)

Praise our Father God that we are no longer slave! We are the HEIR of God!

Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an HEIR through God (Galatians 4:7).

Let us gird up our faith during the Lenten season, and look toward to the birth of our new, true self through the resurrection of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death (Rom 8:1-2).
