DESTINED FOR GLORY



Galatians 4:1-8 [LEB]

4 Now I say, for as long a time as the heir is a child, he is no different from a slave, although he* is master of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the time set by his father. 3 So also we, when we were children, we were enslaved under the elemental spirits of the world. 4 But when the fullness of time came, God sent out his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 in order that he might redeem those under the law, in order that we might receive the adoption. 6 And because you are sons, God sent out the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba! (Father!),” 7 so that you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, also an heir through God.

Galatians 4:1-8 [LEB]

1 Now I say, for as long a time as the heir is a child, he is no different from a slave, although he* is master of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the time set by his father.


Galatians 3:23-29 [LEB]

23 But before faith came, we were detained under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith was revealed. 24 So then, the law became our guardian until Christ, in order that we could be justified by faith.


Galatians 4:3 3

So also we, when we were children, we were enslaved under the elemental spirits of the world.


2 Corinthians 4:4 [NCV]

4 The devil who rules this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe. They cannot see the light of the Good News—the Good News about the glory of Christ, who is exactly like God. Romans 8:38 [NLT] And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.


1 Corinthians 2:6 [NCV]

6 However, I speak a wisdom to those who are mature. But this wisdom is not from this world or from the rulers of this world, who are losing their power


Galatians 3:23-29 [LEB]

But before faith came, we were detained under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith was revealed. 24 So then, the law became our guardian until Christ, in order that we could be justified by faith.
