Galatians 4:4-5 (NKJV) 4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
We hope you had a chance to read yesterday’s devotional, where we dug into the first section of verse 4.
Today, let’s finish up verse 4 and move on to verse 5 as well.
In the very last part of verse 4, it says that Jesus was born under the law.
This means that He was born as a Jew who would be raised up learning and following the Mosaic law, understanding its traditions and rituals to their fullest extent, and obeying those same laws.
Unlike all other men, Jesus obeyed them all perfectly. This is something that was impossible for all other men.
His sinless nature demonstrated His perfection, making Him the only One who could possibly be a sacrifice (the prefect lamb) without blemish.
In doing this, He “redeemed those who were under the law”.
His fulfilling of the law made the law obsolete, setting the people free from it forever.
This is a big deal that is often overlooked, or at the very least, not fully comprehended.
The sacrifice that Jesus made (the price He paid) by giving His life, set all men (and women) free from the bondage of the law, once and for all.
And as part of the new freedom that He gave through His death, all men and women now had (and still have) the opportunity to be adopted by God as sons and daughters.
Additionally, when Jesus breathed His last breath and surrendered His spirit up to God, the veil of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom, giving us direct, unfettered access to God, so we can now approach Him directly, without fear of retribution of admonishment.
Mark 15:37-38 (NKJV) 37 And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last. 38 Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
So, we are no longer obligated to rely on another man or woman to go to God for us. We no longer need a priest to intercede for us.
We can approach God boldly and without fear, making our petitions known to Him, one on one in prayer.
Hebrews 4:16 (NKJV) 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this breakdown of these two verses, and that you’ve learned some new things about them that will help your walk with God grow stronger!
