But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
Throughout history, God had been preparing the world for the coming of His Son, Jesus Christ. When the set time had fully come, He sent His Son to be born of a woman and to live among us, fulfilling the law and providing a way for us to be redeemed.
Jesus’ birth was not a random event or a coincidence. It was all part of God’s plan from the beginning. His birth fulfilled prophecies that had been made hundreds of years earlier, such as Isaiah’s prophecy that a virgin would give birth to a child who would be called Immanuel, which means “God with us” (Isaiah 7:14).
Jesus’ birth was also significant because He was born under the law. This means that He was subject to the same laws that govern all of humanity, and He fulfilled all the requirements of the law perfectly. As a result, He was the only One able to redeem those who were under the law, freeing them from the curse of sin and death.
God’s plan for salvation was not an afterthought or a last-minute decision. It was part of His plan from the beginning of time, and He sent His Son to redeem us at just the right time. Let us be grateful for the sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf and let us live our lives in a way that honors Him and brings glory to God.
Lord, I know You have always considered me even from the beginning of time. You brought forth Your only Sone so I could have peace and life with You in Heaven. Thank You for saving me and giving me eternal life.
