1. The Law blocked the inheritance until the appointed time

The Judiazers had been telling the Galatians that the law was a graduate school for the gospel. But Paul insisted that being under the law was actually a sign of immaturity. For the Galatians to go back to the law would be like a PHD repeating kindergarten to work on his alphabet. If they wanted to be spiritual grown-ups, they would have to advance beyond the law. – Phillip Ryken

2. The gospel releases the inheritance to the church

15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. – Hebrews 4:15 (ESV)

3. The Spirit assures us that we have full rights to the inheritance as sons.

Application

  1. Rejoice that you are no longer a slave
  2. Rejoice that you have been made a son
  3. Rejoice that you have been made an heir
Chris Daukas

Chris grew up with a loving family and in a moral home, but despite his upbringing, he was a sinner in need of grace. In his sophomore year of college, Chris yielded his life to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. He began to devour the Word and was soon helping to lead bible studies, outreaches, and worship at church. He married his beautiful wife, Tara, in the summer of 2000.
