Father God, Your Word says that we were born in slavery under the basic principles of the world. But when the time had fully come, You sent Your Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those of us who were under the law, so that we might receive the full rights of sons.

And because we are now sons of God through our faith and belief in the Incarnate Christ, You sent the Spirit of Your Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”

So we are no longer slaves but are sons. And since we are sons, You have made us Your heirs also (Gal. 4:3-7). May I truly celebrate this divine gift of grace today.
