Galatians 4:4-7New International Version - UK (NIVUK)

But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.[a] Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, ‘Abba,[b] Father.’ So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
