"But when the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons" (Galatians 4:4-5).
God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to this wicked world so that we might obtain eternal salvation for His name's sake. The Father sent Him "when the fullness of time came," or at the proper time. He divinely appointed the perfect moment to send the Messiah to this earth to save His people. "God sent forth His Son." This confirms Jesus' preexistence as the second person of the trinity. His existence didn't begin in the manger - He never had a beginning because He is from "everlasting to everlasting" (Psalm 90:2). The Ancient of Days came to us as a newborn baby. He is "the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end" (Revelation 22:13), "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty" (Revelation 1:8). Sent by the Father, the eternal Son of God willingly left His home of perfection and utter bliss to this world of filthy iniquity. God became a man. God, possessing complete authority and limitless power, became a man. He remains 100% God yet He also takes on humanity, causing Him to also be 100% man. The Sovereign King of the Universe humbled Himself and became a lowly Nazarene. Jesus was "born of a woman." This proves His humanity. He came into this world the same as everyone else did. Likewise, He was "born under the Law." Everyone is to obey the commands of the Law, including Jesus. That naturally came with being a human, but unlike us, He never transgressed. He upheld His state of sinless perfection. He was "tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:15). Since He fulfilled the Law in righteousness, He is now able to redeem us who are under the Law. By taking His own sinless body of flesh to the cross, He paid the penalty for our failure to keep the Law. We once were pinned down under the Law, unable to escape the penalty of our own transgressions, but Jesus Christ redeemed us and set us free. We're guaranteed eternal life with our Savior as He is crushed under the wrath of the Father, taking upon Himself the punishment that we deserve. After suffering through our punishment, He arose from the dead and conquered the fear of death forever. We no longer fear death because when our life on earth comes to an end we will take on immortal bodies so that we might forever be with the One who died and rose for us. Jesus descended from on High so "that we might receive the adoption as sons." He came down to His own creation to be mocked and beat and ridiculed so that His people could be reconciled to God. He has made a way to deliver us from the bondage of being children of the devil so that He might adopt us as His own children. We can become sons and daughters of the Most High! Jesus Christ humbled Himself and stepped down out of glory to take on the form of a man. He laid aside His divine reputation to be a lowly carpenter. As a man, He still possessed His divine nature, never inheriting human nature, therefore, He was God manifest in the flesh - fully God, fully man - this is the only way we could have obtained salvation. A man couldn't have been a sufficient and unblemished sacrifice yet God couldn't have died, so that's why Jesus had to be both man and God in order to grant us salvation. He had to live a perfect life (something God could do), yet He also had to die (something man can do). Our Savior needed to be both God and man, and so He was. Now that God came to this world in the likeness of humans, we can be reconciled to Him through adoption. The Lord Jesus Christ was born into this world so that He could live a sinless life to deliver us from the condemnation that the Law brings and willingly die and rise from the dead in order to gather His people to be reconciled to God through adoption. He came to show us the way to God. Praise God for sending forth His Son!
I'm a twenty one year old Christian saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone, for the glory of God alone. Praise the great name of our glorious Savior!!
Go serve your King!"
