The Promise, the Pedagogue and the Fullness of Time

The Promise, the Pedagogue and the Fullness of Time

Advent is a wonderful practice of patience and preparation. A time to reflect on His Word and ready our hearts. We have spent these first three weeks of December meditating on these concepts – the promise of a Savior, the pedagogue in the form of the Law and then, in the fullness of time, the promise fulfilled.

And because of this promise fulfilled, our debt of sin is reconciled. We are made whole, heirs through God and set free by His love. Through Him, we have our inheritance – the only Christmas gift we need.

Tonight’s sermon text is from Galatians 4:

I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave,though he is the owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. 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.
