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. (Galatians 4:4-7 ESV)
Hymn ELH 227:14 Salvation Unto Us Is Come
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
In earth, as ’tis in heaven.
Keep us in life, by grace led on,
Forgiving and forgiven;
Save Thou us in temptation’s hour,
And from all ills; Thine is the pow’r,
And all the glory, Amen!
Heavenly Father, thank you for planning my salvation from eternity and for sending Your Son to fulfill that plan, so that I can be assured of my inheritance of heaven through faith in Jesus. In His name I pray. Amen.
