As believers in the resurrected son of God who have received salvation by grace through faith, we are no longer servants, but now ‘sons of God’. Christ’s inheritance belongs to “all those who are sanctified” (Acts 20:32). As co-heirs with Christ we receive the full inheritance from the Father and heaven as our reward!
Throughout Galatians 3, Paul reminds us that the Spirit is received by faith and man is no longer slave to the law. He emphasizes that the true purpose of the law was to lead us to Christ, a once and for all sacrifice, that we might be justified through faith in Christ. Jesus humbled himself and became the curse so that we might be heirs according to the promise given to Abraham.
As we reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ this Good Friday, I am reminded of the hymn writer who penned these words; “my sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought, my sin not in part, but the whole was nailed to the cross and I bear it no more. Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, oh my soul!”. Glory be to the God of all grace who has poured out His love toward us through the sacrifice of His son that we may be ‘sons of God’.
