Galatians 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
To illustrate what he had said of the law’s being a schoolmaster to the Jews until the coming of Christ, and then ceasing as a schoolmaster, he proposes the case of an heir during his minority, till he come to the proper age of enjoying his estate. Anyone that is an heir to his father’s estate, or another’s, while under age, being reckoned as a child, from his infancy to his manhood. He is not his own man, nor at his own dispose; he cannot do as he pleases; he is under restraint; he is kept in school or to business, and is liable to correction and chastisement according as he behaves; nor can he have the free use of his father’s estate, Paul like a skillful lawyer has systematically laid out His case, and is undefensable, to a sound mind. But the fall has corrupted man’s mind and heart, they believe a lie rather than the truth of Scripture, and have turned the truth of God into a lie. For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. (Romans 1:18) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12,13)
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. (Jude 1: 24,25)
