Galatians 5:1 – 2
Romans 6:14 – 7:6

4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
I The coming of the Son of God
Job 14:1 (NKJV)
1 “Man who is born of woman
Is of few days and full of trouble.
Job 15:14 (NKJV)
14 “What is man, that he could be pure?
And he who is born of a woman, that he could be righteous?
Job 25:4 (NKJV)
4 How then can man be righteous before God?
Or how can he be pure who is born of a woman?
Luke 7:28 (NKJV)
28 For I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”
“He took to himself the nature of all men, and not the person of any man.” — John Owen, An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews.
II The reason for His Coming
1 Approach, my soul, the mercy-seat,
Where Jesus answers prayer;
There humbly fall before His feet,
For none can perish there.
2 Thy promise is my only plea
With this I venture nigh:
Thou callest burden’d souls to Thee,
And such, O Lord, am I.
3 Bow’d down beneath a load of sin,
By Satan sorely press’d,
By war without, and fears within,
I come to Thee for rest.
4 Be Thou my Shield and Hiding Place,
That, shelter’d near Thy side,
I may my fierce accuser face,
And tell him, Thou hast died. — William Cowper
