Until the fullness of time

Until the fullness of time

The Bible is a book full of inheritance. We can see this in the way we divide the books: An Old Testament and a New Testament. Through Adam we inherit a curse, but through Abraham we inherit a promise of a redeemer.

So, where does the law fit into these inheritances? The law was given to us as a guardian so that before we received our inheritance through Christ we might not hurt ourselves as children. Now that Christ has delivered us through baptism and faith, we no longer need that guardian.

Tonight’s Epistle reading:

23Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. 24So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. 25But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, 26for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. 27For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise

Galatians 3:23-29
