Daily devotional: From slave to son and heir

Scripture
So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.
Galatians 4:7 NIV

Observation
Before having faith in Jesus for my salvation, I was a slave under sin and the law. Now I am a son of God, and not only that, but also an heir of the Holy Spirit, who God sent into my heart, and also of eternal life!

Application
Realize that it is my faith in Jesus that saved me. Continue trusting in God through faith, rather than trusting in works for my salvation.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for today, for the cooler weather and for strength to work today. Thank you for your marvelous plan of salvation! Thank you for releasing me from being a prisoner of sin and for sending the Holy Spirit into my heart! Thank you for adopting me as Your son and for answering me when I cry out to You. I love you.
