God sent forth His Son to redeem us

Posted

But when the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son, born from a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Galatians 4:4-5

Though the law instructed us and revealed our utter sinfulness and need for a Savior, now that God has fulfilled His ancient promise to send that Savior — His own dear Son, born of the Virgin Mary, to fulfill the law for us and then to redeem us from the curse of the law by dying in our stead that we might be adopted as God’s own children through faith in Christ — we do not go back under the law but hold fast in faith to Christ Jesus, our Savior.

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. Amen.
