He Shall Reign
Passage: Galatians 4:4–4:7
On this fourth Sunday of Advent Ryan Johnston teaches from Paul's letter to the Galatians - not what we normally associate with the Christmas story. However, in verse 4 Paul recounts the birth of Jesus and how we are redeemed and adopted. In this passage we learn three things about Christmas: 1) That God's plan is fulfilled in God's time, 2) We see the advent of the life of Jesus coming into humanity, and 3) We see the fulness of the purpose of his coming. Jesus fully lived as a man on earth but as one who completely fulfilled the law but without sin and was born of a virgin. Are you ready to accept his redemption and adoption by him into his family?
