Christian Devotional – August 31, 2012

VERSE:
Galatians 4:4-5–But when the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

TRUTH:
We are sinners under the Law. God sent Jesus who lived perfectly, not breaking any of the Law, so that He could sacrifice Himself and pay the penalty we all deserve, death. Through His sacrifice we are able to come to God and be adopted as God’s own children. We can have a relationship with God that was originally denied to us based on our faith in Jesus and His sacrifice on our behalf.

RESPONSE:
Father, You make all the difference. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, I now have a place in Your family. I have accepted what You’ve done for me, I want to share that with others today.
