It seems like every minute I spend with Nathan I learn something else about God (and some of the moments I spend without him). I don’t want to bombard you with them all in one day because I know that there are some people who actually come here to hear about something other than me and my baby (even though it is hard to believe). This first lesson is simple.
But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons. Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, "Abba, Father." So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.
I really want to slap my head when I read this and say "Oh, now I get it." Now I understand what a major sacrifice it was for him to give up His son. Now I understand what it means to be called God’s son and how much love that carries with it. I don’t really think I ever understood that until I look at him.
