Perfect Timing, Perfect Gift

"But when the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons." Galatians 4:4-5

There is so much packed into this verse. In short, it speaks to the fact that God provided the remedy for sinful mankind at just the precise time. And He did it in a remarkable way. A child born to a poor Jewish girl. In fact, I think we can see shades of
Genesis 3:15 in these verses. If you are unfamiliar with that passage you may wish to read the entirety of Genesis chapter 3 for the full context.

Indeed, Messiah has come. God's timing is perfect, and He sent the perfect gift.
