Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Now I mean that the heir, as long as he is a minor, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything.
For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery.
And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's descendants, heirs according to the promise.
The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God's children.
