   God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.
    -- Galatians 4:4-5, New International Version

   God sent his Son.  No one else would do.  He had sent prophets, priests, and preachers.  Religion remained earthbound, legalistic, and doomed.  It seems most of the people missed the real message, there fore God sent to us the "Cliff Notes," God's is most precious Son.  Why?  So we might be adopted into his family and have the same rights as the Savior, God's Son and our brother in the faith!  Remember, as you were Baptized, you were named into the family of God.  As you were Baptized, you became a brother or a sister to all who have gone before and all who will follow.  You are a part of the biggest family ever, and the is family is based on two things, Love God with all of passion, your head, and your very essence, then also your neighbor as yourself.  Do this and you will be doing all that you have been called to do.

   Thank you, Holy God, for bringing me into your family through your Son.  Thank you for not treating me as a stranger.  Thank you for not leaving aside, forgotten and broken, but accepting me through your grace into a dynamic love relationship as your child.  Thank you for all your promises.  Thank you for sending your Son.  In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I thank you. Amen.
