With the coming of Christ, Paul writes to the believers in Galatia, the way of faith has been made available to us. We are no longer under the guardianship of the law; we have been made right with God through faith in Jesus Christ.

And not only righteous, but we have become children of God by faith. “For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26 NLT

As we all become children of God by faith in Jesus Christ, all the old distinctions matter no more. Jew and Gentile, slave or free, male or female– all have “put on Christ” and are now known  simply as “children of God.”  And, belonging to Christ, we become the true children of Abraham. The promise of God applies to us as true heirs of Abraham by faith.

What a transformation! We who were enemies of God, without strength, have been offered the incredible gift of God. “Put your faith in Jesus Christ,” we are told. “He has paid the price for all sin. He has made it possible for you to be right with God by His perfect obedience and His perfect sacrifice and His perfect resurrection. Simply by faith in Him, you will be made right with God; more than that, you will be accepted as Children of God, heirs to the promise God made to Abraham.”
