“But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children” – Galatians 4:4-5
I love that this is the verse I came across today! It is one of my favorites! God waited until the PERFECT moment to send the Messiah to the world. The Israelites had been longing for him for so long, but God knew when they would be ready to receive him…when the world would be ready.
This is one of my favorites for another reason also, it reminds us that because Christ came and died for us, we can be true sons and daughters of the King! When we give our hearts wholly to Christ, we are ADOPTED into the family of God! WOW! It still gives me goosebumps!
