TOPIC: FULLNESS OF TIME
TEXT: Galatians 4:4-7(NKJV)
4. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
5. to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
6. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”
7. Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
The fall of man in the Garden of Eden was to be his end and that of his destiny in God. According to the word of God, “……for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Gen. 2:17). As a result of the fall, Man inherited the nature of Satan, and the imaginations of his heart became evil.
God in declaring judgment on the serpent, manifested His kindness and love towards man by this utterance, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Gen. 3:15). At the fullness of time, Mary found grace in God’s sight as that instrument through which God became man, in order to deliver man from the bondage of sin and law.
The seed of the woman who is Christ crushed the devil for our deliverance. This act of God in Christ changed the narrative and returned us to the position of sons. We have boldness to call God our father if we have come into this salvation. If not, we remain slaves to sin and the flesh, and have no hope of eternity with him.
PRAYER: Grant me the grace to accept and remain in my salvation walk with you, Abba father.
