"But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive the full rights as sons." NIV
"But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons." KJV
When Jesus went to the cross, He found us in our depravity. He brought us out of that hopeless condition. He paid the full price for our freedom with His own precious blood. Along with that, He restored us to our original place as His children, with full rights as heirs of His kingdom. What joy and hope we have!
Heavenly Father, we can never repay You for the sacrifice You made to set us free from sin and restore us as Your own. Help us, Lord, to live worthy of Your great grace and mercy until that day You bring us Home. In Jesus' name. Amen.
