Knowing God as Father - Understanding the Doctrine of Adoption (Galatians 4:1-7)

C.J. Mahaney, September 23, 2016
Part of the True Worshippers 2016 (Conference) series, preached at a SGUK service

This is the fourth of four messages from the SGUK 'True Worshippers' Conference 2016.


Galatians 4:1-7

4:1 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. (ESV)
