Sons and Daughters, no longer slaves


This morning I felt the urge to write. I have so much information coming in that I have to pour it out so that I can continue to have more poured in. So I asked my Papa where to read, to make this as simple as possible. More of your Word and less of mine. This is where He led me: Galatians 4 Sonship of Christ Paul is talking about how even before Christ came they were sons, but were children in their knowing so they appeared to others and themselves as slaves. Then Christ came being born under the law and those who believed would gain their adoption as sons. Now this has been taught that we were never sons and daughters but have been adopted, but that’s NOT what this text says. Verse 3 says “So also we, while we were children, were held in bondage (lies) under the elemental things of the world (law). This adoption is into the Body of Christ, not to be adopted as a child, we were already sons but lacked maturity of the knowledge of who they truly were.

But what I am pressed to write about isn’t about them, it’s about US. You and I. Paul tells us in verse 6: Because you ARE sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7) THEREFORE you are NO longer a slave, but a SON; and if a SON, then an heir through God.

I ask that you read this passage, I am reading from the NASB version, pray and ask that God reveal His truth to you about your TRUE identity. We all CLAIM that we agree we are Sons and Daughters but the reality is we are behaving as slaves. We are not slaves, we are Sons and Daughters and co-heirs with Christ through God. We are the manifestation of the living God, if we believe we are. But so few do. So they are trapped by the elementals of this world.

Praying for you and I to truly begin to walk out in the reality of who we are. We are FREE from SIN. We do not have to be slaves to it. We have the SPIRIT OF JESUS IN US. HE is GREATER than anything this WORLD will ever be.
