Galatains 4:4-7 gives one of the most critical identity shifts in the Christian life: "Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir" (NLT). If we don’t understand how God views us, we will always go back to the Law and rule keeping to motivate us in our obedience. Ugh!

Do you have an area of sin in your life where you cannot seem to find freedom? Many of us desperately want to know where to find freedom from the influence of sin. We do have power over sin and it is not by focusing more on the rules or working harder.
