Galatians 4:1 KJV
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
This verse is reminiscent to 1 Corinthians 13 "putting away childish things." The believer is encouraged to reach past such childish things as sign gifts and, in Galatians, works of the Law and flesh for righteousness.
As sons of God we are to mature and grow into perfection through the work of the Holy Spirit in us. God has done that work in saving us but, if we continue to trust in
• Our own flesh
• Our own thinking
• Our own goodness
to establish our righteousness then we differ nothing from the servant.
There are far too many servant saints and not enough son saints these days.
