"We were in slavery under the elemental spiritual forces of the world. But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir." (Galatians 4:3-7)
Each of us is a slave to sin until we accept God's free gift of salvation - once we put our trust in Christ and let Him be Lord of our life, we are called children of God.
No Longer Slaves by Bethel Music
You unravel me with a melody You surround me with a song Of deliverance from my enemies 'Til all my fears are gone I'm no longer a slave to fear I am a child of God From my mother's womb You have chosen me Love has called my name I've been born again to my family Your blood flows through my veins I'm no longer a slave to fear I am a child of God I am surrounded By the arms of the Father I am surrounded By songs of deliverance We've been liberated From our bondage We're the sons and the daughters Let us sing our freedom You split the sea So I could walk right through it My fears are drowned in perfect love You rescued me And I will stand and sing I am a child of God. You split the sea So I could walk right through it You drowned my fears in perfect love You rescued me And I will stand and sing I am a child of God. Yes, I am I am a child of God
