Sonship in Christ

1 Now I say, as long as the heir is a achild, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is bowner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and cmanagers until the date set by the father. 3 So also we, while we were children, were held 1in bondage under the d2elemental things of the world. 4 But when 3the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, 4born of a woman, born 5under ethe Law, 5 so that He might redeem those who were under fthe Law, that we might receive the adoption as 6sons. 6 Because you are sons, 7God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, "8Abba! Father!" 7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and 9if a son, then an heir gthrough God. 8 However at that time, 10when you did not know God, you were 11slaves to 12those which by nature are no gods.
