But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
Galatians 4:4-5 NKJV
Jesus had to come to this earth and be born under the law so that when He died upon the cross as a sinless savior, His blood would atone for the sins of humanity. Jesus came not to destroy the law, but He came to fulfill it. This is why His righteousness is applied to us and we are able to draw near to our Father without fear and with boldness. It is also important to understand that it states when the fullness of time had come. God has a set time for all things and it was set in place before the creation of all things. God’s plans and purposes are sovereign and are being fulfill daily upon the earth. May we draw near to Christ each day and pray as the Holy Spirit leads.
