I praise you, O Christ Son of God, for when the fullness of time had come, God sent you forth, born of a woman, to redeem us, so that we might receive adoption as children of God. And because we are God’s children, he has sent the Spirit of Christ into our hearts, by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” So we are no longer slaves to sin, but children of God with full benefits and privileges due to our inheritance in him (Galatians 4:4-6).
