From Slaves to Sons

Passage: Galatians 3:26-4:7 Speaker: Pastor Lukus Counterman Series: Gospel Rooted Living

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Imagine someone going to their father and saying, “I would rather be your slave than your child.” Who among us would make such an odd request? Yet that was the folly of the Galatians under the influence of their false teachers. They were preferring slavery under the law over sonship under grace, and so Paul corrects them.1 The way for us to avoid the Galatians’ mistake is to let God’s Word keep telling us what we have and who we are in Christ. As we examine Galatians 3:26-4:7, may the Lord remind us about the means, implications, and resultant joy associated with being sons of God.
