REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE

Galatians 3:26-4:7

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.

Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by the father. So also we, while we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental things of the world. 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. Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”  Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.

 

DON’T FORGET JESUS MADE YOU A CHILD OF GOD

  • For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

–      Galatians 3:26

 

ALL WERE BORN CHILDREN OF WRATH

  • Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.

–      Ephesians 2:3

 

ALL MUST BECOME A CHILD OF GOD

  • But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

–      John 1:12-13

 

GOD’S PLAN ALWAYS INCLUDED GENTILES

  • Yet the number of the sons of Israel will be like the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or numbered; And in the place where it is said to them, “You are not My people,” it will be said to them, “You are the sons of the living God.”

–      Hosea 1:10

 

AS A CHILD OF GOD PUT ON YOUR NEW WARDROBE

  • For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

–      Galatians 3:27

 

DEMONSTRATING THAT WE ARE ONE: NO SECOND CLASS CHRISTIANS

  • For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.

–      1 Corinthians 12:13

 

ALL ARE SAVED THE SAME WAY

  • There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

–      Galatians 3:28

 

GOD SHOW NO FAVORITISM

  • a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.

–      Colossians 3:11

 

EQUALITY IN CHRIST

  • And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.

–      Galatians 3:29

 

THE LAW WAS TO PREPARE YOU TO BECOME RIGHTFUL HEIRS

  • Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by the father.

–      Galatians 4:1-2

 

GENTILES FOLLOWED UNIVERSAL LAWS OF GOD TO CHRIST

  • So also we, while we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental things of the world.

–      Galatians 4:3

 

GOD’S TIMING IS PERFECT

  • But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law

–      Galatians 4:4

 

GOD PAID FOR OUR ADOPTION WITH CHRIST DEATH

  • so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

–      Galatians 4:5

 

REMEMBER GOD IS YOUR DADDY AND YOU ARE AN HEIR TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD

  • Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.

–      Galatians 4:6-7

  • Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

–      1 Peter 3:3-5
