Bite-Sized Bible Studies: Heirs of God through Christ

Galatians 4:6-8
"And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!"

Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods."

In Christ, we are free, like the eldest son in ancient Israeli culture who is not a servant but inherits all his father leaves behind. Christians, men and women in Christ by faith, like these eldest sons, are free from serving sin but can now worship God freely, and, through Christ, shall inherit all of the wonderful things our Heavenly Father has for us for eternity!
