Galatians 4 – In the Fullness of Time

Galatians 4:4 was a cross reference for Bible Bee this summer and for some reason, it has stuck with me ever since then. Maybe because it’s a reminder of how we can even know God.

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law.

God sent His ONLY Son to die on the cross for our sins while we were yet sinners (Rom. 5:8). Jesus became the curse (since he was hung on a tree) when he was crucified so that we could be free. And because Jesus went through that death, we were redeemed to later accept Him. Then once accepting Him, we became His children.

It’s crazy to think that God wanted to redeemed us so much that He was willing to sacrifice His Son. But friends, this shows how much He cares about and loves us.

We are now His children and no longer slaves to sin. But without Jesus’ death, we would be wandering around lost and not know how to handle anything. However, since He did die, we have the most ultimate guide and can know the Heavenly Father that Jesus followed.

And now as children of God, we can walk in the light as He is in the light.

We can share with others about the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus and how He wants to know all of us.

We can serve a sovereign and gracious God.

We have Someone who we can put our trust in during all situations and Who will never leave.

But you know, the actions listed above can be hard to do because we are still vulnerable to sin. Even though we are His children, that doesn’t mean that we are perfected in anyway. We’re still imperfect and flawed beings living in a sinful world with a flesh that fights against the Holy Spirit. However, since we know Christ, we can fight off the temptations and lies of the enemy through His strength. Friends, He is oh so welling to fight our battles…we just have to let Him.

Our life here on earth won’t be perfect, but we serve a God who is. In the fullness of time, God sent His Son, so in the fullness of time, He will help and guide you. You never have to go through anything on your own; just hold your Father’s hand and let Him lead.

To God be the glory,
