The Heir (Galatians #14)

Text: Galatians 4:1-7

Let’s consider who is who in these verses.  The heir is the Lord Jesus Christ.  Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.  The servant is a sinner; see verse 7, thou art no more a servant.  You’re not the heir, not yet.  You begin as a servant.  That’s where all sinners begin.

Humility (vss 1-2)

  • Differeth nothing – That’s a powerful thought that the God of Creation at one point in time differed nothing from man He created.
  • Under tutors – That’s also powerful thought that He would be subject to anything.
    • Both in subjection.

Heart (vss 3-5)

  • Redeem
  • Adopt

Heritage (vss 5-7)

  • From sinner to the family of God.
  • Opportunity as a joint heir with Christ and all the blessings of the estate!
