"Sons of God" Galatians 3:26-4:7 (The Gospel vs. Religion)

The next Gospel picture that the Apostle Paul grounds the Galatians in is their adoption as sons of God. This is not a sexist label, but a revolutionary status. Nothing combats our religious insecurities about our performance and doubts about our belonging more than our new name and place in the family of God. God the Father did not just send the Son and His Spirit to free us from law and pay off our debts, but to adopt us into His family as His children together. As a son, you have nothing to prove and your place in the family is secure.
