Today's Verse : Galatians 4:4


April 4, 2012

But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a
woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might
receive the full rights of sons.
-- Galatians 4:4

Wow! What a rich passage full of many wonderful thoughts. Let's
put it in cornbread English so that we can not only read it, we can
also believe it. God made history ready for a savior and then sent
his Son. That Son had to deal with all the difficulties of the Law
and faced all the frailties of being a human. Our Father bought our
freedom at the terrible cost of his Son's life on a cross in front
of a mob that was jeering and jealous of his popularity. He did
this so that you and I could be his honored children, entitled to
all of his wonderful inheritance. To put it succinctly: God's plan,
God's Son, God's ransom, Our glory.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for all the pain it caused you to
send Jesus and to see him persecuted, ridiculed, and crucified.
Thank you for redeeming me from my sinful condition, for buying me
out of the death that would have been the consequence of my sins,
and for giving me the gift of freedom and family. To you belongs
all glory, honor, and praise for your marvelous grace. In Jesus'
name I pray. Amen.
