The Whole Family

By CTA - Christ to All

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Galatians 4:4–5 ESV

 

Reflect

A son has privilege over nonfamily members. A son has access to his father in ways that others do not. I can’t burst into Presidential meetings, but Abraham Lincoln’s sons, Willie and Tad, were known to disrupt quite a few (without fearing repercussions). Jesus is the Son of God, and the life he gives you includes all the privileges of sonship.

 

Act

Find the song “I’m Adopted” by Slugs and Bugs on YouTube and listen to it. Share it with someone—a child or an adult!
