Acts: The Early Church - Pt. 16 Understanding Adoption in the Gospel

Galatians 3:4-25

Living as those Adopted through the Gospel

The Gospel's Implications on Orphan Care Today

Galatians 3:4-25 

"In most ancient cultures, daughters could not inherit property. Therefore, 'son' meant 'legal heir,' which was a status forbidden to women. But the Gospel tells us we are all sons of God in Christ. We are all heirs." - Tim Keller, Galatians for You

Galatians 1:3-6 

"You have more in common with your Christian brother or sister in the deserts of Africa than you do with your neighbor who doesn't believe the Gospel." - Travis Agnew

Ephesians 2:6-7 

Galatians 5:13-14 

James 1:22-27 

Matthew 25:31-46 

"Your theology inevitably leads to your biography. What you believe about God determines how you live. Always." - Tony Merida
