SERMON OUTLINE | November 12, 2017


We have status, security, and satisfaction in our adoption through Jesus Christ.


4 Now I say that as long as the heir is a child, he differs in no way from a slave, though he is the owner of everything. 2 Instead, he is under guardians and trustees until the time set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were in slavery under the elements of the world. 4 When the time came to completion, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. 6 And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba, Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then God has made you an heir.


In Christ, We Have Status in Our Identity with the Father (v. 1-5)


In Christ, We Have Security in Our Intimacy with The Father (v.6)


In Christ, We Have Satisfaction in Our Inheritance from The Father (v.7)


We have status, security, and satisfaction in our adoption through Jesus Christ.
