From Slaves To Sons

Galatians 3:25-4:7


How does God’s adoption of us change our identity? 


1) Who I am in Christ (3:25-29)

a. You are a son of God- (redefines your vertical relationship)

               4 implications of putting on Christ:

  1. Classification
  2. Closeness
  3. Character
  4. Covering

b. You are one in Jesus- (redefines your horizontal relationships)

               3 barriers are broken down: 

  1. Cultural barriers
  2. Class barriers
  3. Gender barriers

c. You belong to a new family line- (redefines your history)


2) Who I was (4:1-3)

1) You were a slave 


3) What has happened to me? (4:4-7) 

a. Your adoption came at the right time- 

b. Your adoption came through the right person- 

c. Truly God 

d. Truly man 

e. Truly righteous 

f. Your adoption provides you a new identity

g. Your adoption provides you a new intimacy

e. Your adoption provides you a new inheritance


Are you living in the bondage of slavery or the freedom of sonship?
