Sermon Outline:

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
